  • 1. Drury Plaza Hotel
    Drury Plaza Hotel St. Louis at the Arch, Saint Louis, Missouri

    Look no further for the perfect St. Louis hotel! The Drury Plaza Hotel is across the street from the famous Arch and within walking distance to a number of downtown attractions. Want more than a fantastic location? What about free food? The complimentary breakfast is unexpectedly good...freshly cooked, hot choices like eggs, sausage and biscuits as well as continental offerings. The meal is eaten in the historic lobby area, enhanced by a bronze, life-size tableau of Lewis and Clark. Still not enough? In the evening, there're free hot appetizers and freshly popped popcorn. Also included in your stay are two free cocktails per night per person. An indoor pool and suites that cost less than many single hotel rooms are additional selling points.

  • 2. Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park
    Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park, Saint Louis, Missouri

    Free, fun and fantastic! The underground museum is wonderously designed in an open semi-circle containing varied artifacts and reproductions from the Lewis and Clark Expedition. An animatronic Red Cloud, along with other figures who may startle you by suddenly speaking, offer other viewpoints to the dusty history books. An Imax presentation of the Expedition is at hand for a small fee. For another fee, climb into a "pod" and travel up the Arch itself for an outstanding view of St. Louis and the MIssissippi River.

  • 3. Old Courthouse
    Old Courthouse, Saint Louis, Missouri

    After a few hours at the Arch, walk the few blocks it takes to reach the Old Courthouse. Most famous for hearing the Dred Scott case, artifacts and knowledgeable guides make this attraction a must-see in St. Louis.

  • 4. Grant's Farm
    Grant's Farm, Saint Louis, Missouri

    Historic Grant's Farm houses a friendly collection of animals, including the Budweiser Clydesdale horses. Walk over an enchanting wooden bridge to catch a ride to the "zoo" area. Animal shows daily along with an attractive petting zoo. While everyone talks about the St. Louis Zoo--which is amazing--Grant's Farm has it's own special pace and style to it. A memorable afternoon can be enjoyed here before having a fun German dinner in their food area, arranged like a traditional biergarten. Aside from the food, there is no cost!
