- Six Flags St. Louis
- LaChance Vineyards
While visiting St. Louis you won’t want to miss a chance to see the Gateway Arch, the tallest man-made monument in the western hemisphere. Take a tram ride up 630 feet to the top of the world’s largest arch where you can see for miles around, or visit the museum celebrating America’s pioneering spirit.
There are a number of free attractions located in St. Louis that provide hours of fun for the whole family. The top-ranked St. Louis Zoo, Science Center, Art Museum, History Museum, Citygarden Urban Park, and Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tours all offer complimentary admission making St. Louis the perfect destination for the budget conscious traveler.
Don't Go Home Without
A lesser-known stop outside St. Louis is Grant’s Farm. Once owned by our 18th President (and still has his circa-1856 cabin on site), it is now owned by the former beer-brewing Busch family. The historical estate now houses over 900 animals and 100 different species, as well as the world’s largest herds of Clydesdale horses. Admission is free with a car parking fee only.
De Soto and the surrounding area offer some great wineries including LaChance Vineyards, Wild Sun Winery, Villa Antonio Winery and more. The area also includes a number of good spots for antiquing that the front desk staff would be more than happy to share with you if you’re in search of a vintage treasure from your trip.
