St. Louis help - off the beaten path

Jump to last reply

Headed to Missouri in April. Originally we were going to spend some time in Branson, but now I'm thinking about just staying in the St. Louis area for a week. There seems to be a lot to do!

So far I'd like to hit up:

The Arch
Forest Park
The Zoo
Botanical Gardens
City Museum
Magic House
Grant's Farm
Museum of Transportation

Was thinking of the confluence park where the Missouri meets the Mississippi. Is there anything else nearby to add to the day trip? And is it worth it?

With 3 and 4 year old boys, are there any family friendly hiking areas nearby? I did get a recommendation for Elephant Rocks.

We are staying at the Residence Inn Galleria.
