St. Louis has an amazing list of free attractions. If you're walking or on a bike, you can easily fill up a weekend without spending a dime. (Most have free parking, so we suggest you go ahead and drive...)

This museum underneath the arch explains the purpose for the memorial and some of history of this important gateway city. There is also a free film on the construction of the arch that's definitely worth catching.
There is a charge for parking, but not if you come on a bike! Even if you do pay to park, the whole family can enjoy a few hours in this historic animal park, admire the Clydesdales, the architecture of the historic baurenhof and the Busch family's beautiful carriage collection, then mom and dad can have a couple free beers courtesy of Anheuser-Busch.
