Things to do in St. Louis. (With Children)
As a family we love to travel, and of course we always bring our kids along. It can be really stressful trying to figure out what things to do with children- especially on a budget.
For starts the Zoo in St. Louis, is really awesome! And best of all the zoo is FREE. I love free adventures because things can be come very costly with large families. However, the zoo does have passes that allow unlimited merry go round rides and 3D stimulator and train rides. We spent $60 on unlimited passes for the 5 of us! We spent the whole day at the zoo.
They offer a mini seal show as well, this was $2 per person- no unlimited passes though. There are also souvenir cups that can be purchased and really cheap refills. The cups up front are always a little pricey, but the refills are worth it.
A Classic, the Arch. I would recommend getting there early, because you do have to wait in line. We went in 2015, it was $30 for our family of $5. Most of our time was spent in line, but it was really cool being at the top, and our children really enjoyed it as well.
We also took the children on the Steamboats-which happen to be located right next to the Arch! So, we were able to plan those two events together. The steamboats probably could have been more fun for us, but it actually rained EVERY single day we were there! The kids still enjoyed being on the boat though. They did get popcorn and lemonade. They sell little concessions on the boat. Before you get on the boat they take your pictures. Of course, at the end they try to sell them too you, we ended up getting ours for 50% off because we weren't going to purchase them. Try to negotiate them down. ;)
I saved the best for last! We went to this place called the City Museum. It was very awesome. It was this huge building turned into a "fun house" with an outside ballpit and things to climb all over. There was a BBQ restaurant inside- oh, it smelled so good. 3 Story slide, Caves, a little aquarium (purchased separately) For a little extra you can also go to the roof top! We did not experience that since it was raining- and no roof top if it's raining.
We spent the whole day at this museum, and we didn't get to experience the full effect of it! We would like to go back and visit one day, because we all just had such a great time.
