While in St. Louis to see my Physician, I wanted my friend to see Forest Park and all the exquisite architectural structures contained therein. He visited the Art Museum while I was at my Doctor's appointment and he didn't make it through 1/3 of the exhibits due to the extensive collections and his utter immersion in taking in each and...

St.Louis has so many great places to visit and see. Stages is a very comfortable Theatre just 4 blocks West of Downtown Kirkwood. We saw the play, "How to succeed in Business without really trying" Play information was on their website www.stagesstlouis.org . We could not navigate the web site with our I-Phone well enough to buy tickets, so we... More

So much to see and do, truly one of the great urban parks. Amazing that so many attractions ( art museum, history museum, etc) are free. The zoo is incredible. Great architecture.

It's a HUGE Park miles upon miles long, complete with an ourdoor theater, science center, botanical gardens, art museum, zoo, restaurants, and open park areas. I think all was free except the botanical gardens and theater. But you really need to drive from one place to the next (just to give you an idea of how big this park it).... More

Great place to take your family, couples, or just a nice walk. So many wonderful places to see. But please be smart for you ladies that like to run and bike, never go it alone.

I love this park, and everything in it. It's very well maintained. If you are going to the zoo, I would suggest going early in the morning to avoid the long traffic lines. If you aren't going to the zoo, I would suggest finding a different entrance into the park that is away from the zoo! Other than that, this... More

It was a nice hike around the park, but, you may want to buy a hop on hop off pass for the trolley. Visited the Art Museum and the History Museum. Both very interesting, but, a lot to see in one afternoon. Best to take several days to see all the sites in the park.

What a fabulous way to spend a day! Hop on the trolley ($1 for all day if you are a senior citizen) and go all over this beautiful oasis in St. Louis. We visited the Science Center and Planetarium first and then took the trolley to the Missouri Museum of History where we saw a wonderful exhibit on Prohibition plus... More
