9 Things To Do In St Louis This Summer

If you find yourself getting bored, take a look at my suggestions

9 Things To Do In St Louis This Summer
Booms Beat

Well, summer is finally (or nearly) upon us and that means that most of us will be getting very bored very fast. So, as a cure to your boredom, I have some suggestions. Now, these suggestions will be aimed towards those who reside in the St. Louis area, but feel free to fill in places that are similar to where you live. Or, even better idea, come and visit the great STL. We're weirdly polite here, so all are welcome.

1. Go to the pool

I would recommend the Ellisville Edge located in Bluebird Park (but I might be biased). Other good pools I would recommend would be the North Point in Ballwin or Hurricane Harbor located in Six Flags St. Louis.

2. Check out the City Museum

The City Museum is a fun place for both children and adults. There are a few gigantic slides that allow you to slide down multiple stories, plenty of places to climb high enough to get anyone with a fear of heights (aka me) very nervous and plenty of places to feel claustrophobic (again, me). Not only is this place a giant playground, but it also features actual museum artifacts such as the world's largest pair of underwear and the cross that was atop the hospital in the real life story "The Exorcist" is based off of. (Not positive the cross is still there, but it was at one point)

3. Go to Six Flags

I am a lover of theme parks and Six Flags is a pretty good one. A wall outside the Batman ride may be covered with a multitude of colorful pieces of gum, but that only adds to the experience. Plus, as I mentioned before, the water park is pretty fun.

4. Go to the Arch

Yes, I know. We have all been there more times than we can count, but the museum has improved since the last time I was there in fourth grade and who doesn't love riding up the building diagonally in a elevator that doesn't seem totally up to code?

5. Check out the Soulard Farmer's Market

There's more than just fruit and vegetables here, guys. There are places where you can buy homemade soap, essential oils, dog treats, jewelry, and even more.

6. Go to downtown Kirkwood or Maplewood

Kirkwood is home to several cute boutiques and Maplewood has an awesome, tiny independent book store and both have Strange Donut shops. Go get a donut, buy a book, buy a shirt, and enjoy your day.

7. Go to a Ballgame

St. Louis is a baseball town, so a Cardinals game is always a fun idea. Go downtown, try and find parking that isn't outrageously over priced, get a hot dog/nachos/ice cream/beer, and enjoy the game with the best fans in baseball.

8. Go see a show at the Muny

The Muny is an outdoor theater located in Forest Park downtown and it always has many awesome shows playing. This year, some of them are Jesus Christ Superstar, The Little Mermaid, and Newsies.

9. Go to the Zoo

It's free and full of awesome animals. The polar bears recently got a new home and last time I was there, the polar bear looked like it was having the time of its life. The zoo is a must go and always a good idea.

I hope you like my suggestions and take them to heart in order to have a fun and exciting summer vacation.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
