St. Louis Art Museum
The St. Louis Art Museum is visited by up to a half million people every year. You will find it conveniently located in Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri. The museum's three-story building was built as the Palace of the Fine Arts for the 1904 World’s Fair, also known as the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Architect Cass Gilbert was inspired by the Baths of Caracalla in Rome, Italy. The Museum will take part in a $125 Million dollar expansion that will open July 1st 2013. This should help to keep it up to date and offer much more for every person that plans on attending the Museum.
St. Louis Arch
The St. Louis Arch is a symbol that is known all over the world. You will find it on post cards as well as television. And when you think of St. Louis, one of the first things you will think of is the St. Louis Arch. You’ll especially love the view from the top. If you are brave you can lean up against the glass and take some really cool pictures.
Busch Stadium is home to the 2006 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. This is a newly built stadium that has a lot of chemistry. There is more to do than just watch baseball here. They have batting cages, a game room and several food vendors. If you are going to be in St. Louis during the baseball season, then we highly recommend paying a visit to Busch Stadium. It is available for private tours, and you can even reserve your very own private room if they have a game the day of your travel. Advance notice is a must as these fill up pretty fast. Much of our staff is from Missouri, and we love our Cardinals. With Albert Pujols leading the way, you never know when you might see a homerun and the fireworks will go off.
Six Flags St. Louis and Hurricane Harbor Water Park combine to make two great parks in one great place for the perfect getaway. You will want to stay the whole day and experience the amazing new Glow in the Park Parade.
In 2008, Six Flags St. Louis introduced the Evil Knievel roller coaster. This thrilling wooden coaster includes high banked turns, camelbacks, fan curves, and it crosses over itself an amazing 14 times. In 2007, Tony Hawk's Big Spin took the family on a spinning coaster ride with twists and turns in 360° rotations all while grinding through helices, wild mouse turns and a camelback. These great additions joined the park's incredible lineup of heart-pounding roller coasters, thrilling family rides, spectacular shows and their STARBURST® Summer Concert Series. All combine to make Six Flags St. Louis Missouri's Ultimate Theme Park.
