St Louis June 25-27 with teenagers.

First time coming to the city. Know we're doing Budweiser for my hubby and the Arch for us all, and Ted Drewes. Want to visit the City Gardens that's walkable from the Arch correct? Also we're thinking about Paddy's for BBQ. is that the best choice? And being that it's the middle of the week we were wondering if the Soulard Farmers Market will be worth going to or is most of the shops closed except for weekends?

CityGarden is walkable from the Arch.

Soulard Market is really only good on Fridays and Saturdays for visitors

Pappy's (with two P's) is the BBQ place. Put Paddy's (with two D's) into a GPS unit and it should send you to a sports bar next to Busch Stadium that's only open on game days. Bogarts is the other top BBQ spot in town. It's right next to Soulard Market.

As always City Museum is a suggestion for teenagers.

City Garden is walkable from the Arch. Be sure to go early as it gets busy and they do sell out. Have you thought about City Museum? Your teens would probably love it. If you're into Farmer's Markets, there is one in Maplewood on Wednesdays and Webster Groves on Thursdays (4-7pm for both). Sauce on the Side is a great restaurant that you all would like - salads and calzones. It's downtown.

As mentioned, City Museum is great for kids and teenagers. If you go to Pappys, get there when they open. The line forms fast!

I would pass on Soulard Market during the week as a tourist. There won't be much open.
