Return to Main St Louis Page

I am going to visit St Louis with 2 girls 8 and 13 for three days and want to make
the most of it for the girls on a limited budget.  The Arch is one of the things they
want to see but what else would be great for them to see?  We will be coming in in

Great!  Your coming directly into downtown the center of it all. You'll get off at Union
Station, there is a shopping plaza there, mostly with souvenirs to remember your trip. Also
there is a movie theatre and plenty of places to eat all in that central hub. The City Museum
is also down there, it features alot of visual and hands on activities. If you're staying in the
downtown area Dave and Busters is a great place to go where you can eat and play games
and it's right across the bridge. Forest Park is also a great place to visit, it offers the zoo, the
boathouse, and great museums

I am looking for a fun place to take my family on vacation. I am looking for zoos
museums and other fun things for small children to do

Well, Forest Park sounds like the place for you. It houses our world famous zoo, the boat
house, the art and history museum, and the muny (which hosts different plays for free
throughout the summer). There is also the city museum or the majic house which is great for
kids, they have all kinds of interactive and hands on things to see and touch.  Thanks for
stopping by.

Can you tell me  which area,s are good to stay at, and the 1,s to avoid......

There are no really bad places to stay where hotels are located, but probably the best
places to stay to get the best out of the city would be Downtown, Central(U.City, Clayton,
Ladue,CWE) or the airport. They give you the most exposure to the areas sites and
transportation is easier as well.
Hope this helps
