    We fully enjoyed the experience of going up the tram in the arch to the top. It was fun, interesting and informative. I am not great with heights and was nervous about it, but it was not much of an issue b/c the "pods" you take to the top are fully enclosed and there are small windows at the top to look out of. We also enjoyed the museum in the building- it was new and had great info about STL and its origins as a fur trading post through to its history as a gateway to the west. The national park the Arch sits on is also nice. We walked the whole thing and enjoyed looking out at the water. Highly recommended. Kids would love this too.

    The Botanical Gardens are really nice- so many plants to look at and/or perfect for being out with nature. We went here while on vacation to STL and it was another wonderful spot in the city to enjoy the outdoors and learn more about the place.

    No pictures can do this place justice, if you have kids you have to come here !
    We spent 4 hours here with our 2 kids (ages 9 and 6) and they were still finding more areas that they haven’t explored yet !

    Great visit for a Cardinal fan 18 September. Adam Wainwright got his career win #200 with a masterful 7 inning shutout performance. The 1-0 victory kept fans on the edge of their seats all evening. Nobody left the stadium after the game as we waited for the star of the game (Waino) to address the crowd. What an electric evening!

    In town briefly, we took an Uber to 8am mass and found out we were there on the feast day of the patron saint: St. Louis! Truly beautiful mosaics and the organ is awesome too. Staying downtown, it was well worth the trip out to go.

    a must see for St. Louis experience. 280 acres of farm with activities for kids involving interacting with animals.. I mean talk about getting close to nature. Some history of the farm which is narrated during the tram ride, which is how they take us around the place: built by Civil War Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, who settled on the land in 1855 to farm and raise cattle. In 1903, August A. Busch Sr. bought the land, and ever since it has belonged to the Busch family. The entry is free, only have to pay the parking fee of 16 $. Take a fun pass of 10 $ so you can get two feeds (milk bottle for feeding the goats, and feed for the deer), a carousel ride and a popsicle. The experience starts with a tram ride showing all their cool animals, deers, bison, cows, buffaloes, peacock etc. Feeding the goats looks cute, but damn they are greedy. They will bite on to your shoes, bag, they fight with each other to get their mouth on that bottle. I actually took my 4 year old outside the fence and fed them from there. You have to pay extra for the Camel ride if interested and feed stick for the parakeets. It’s really fun to do. We paid $12 for the summer night festival which is essentially music night while chilling with the free drinks. The drinks are free for everyone (two free drinks per head). We got lucky to see their 120th anniversary specials that happened this Labor Day weekend: a drone show from 9 to 9.30 pm, it’s truly an engineering marvel, to see the drones arrange and light ups as the US flag, Missouri state, Grant’s Farm etc.

    It was a great day for our 3 year old daughter. She played and learned for over 5 hours. It’s well worth the cost and time.

    The gateway arch and the ground around the arch are fantastic areas to explore. The sheer size of the arch is hard to fathom until you are up close and personal. They have done a great job of creating a great space around the park to adventure and distance yourself from the metropolitan that surrounds it. I wish they could dampen the light pollution and distraction of the development on the East side of the river which takes away from serenity of the park.

    Our family of five visited the park while in town for a Cardinal’s game. We watched the park film which was very interesting and very good for our grandsons who are being homeschooled for the first time this year. A very good History lesson!! We also went on the house tour and we were so glad we were able to actually go inside the home! We also toured the outer buildings while filling out our Junior Ranger Books. The museum inside the stables was very interesting also, with lots of history! Definitely recommend Ulysses S Grant National Historic Site!!

    I am fortunate to live near such a special place. I visit often, although I have different animal encounters each and every time. Sometimes the Elk are swimming in the pond, sometimes they are resting in the grass and sometimes they are stopping traffic as they cross the road (although the humans don't mind). The bulls, usually off by themselves, are magnificent with their impressive antlers. I've had the best luck seeing the Bison in the afternoon (during the summer months, anyway). The cute youngsters follow closely behind their mothers. I've also seen raccoon families, White-tailed Deer with their young and lots of beautiful Red-headed Woodpeckers. The animals are well protected there, and therefore are not afraid.
