Saint Louis, Missouri is what most people would consider "flyover country". However, it is actually pretty nice here and we just won the Stanley Cup so to many we have been put on the map. I could go on and on about all the places to visit and food to eat but that would probably bore many. So I have come up with a condensed list of seven that covers most of the bases.
1. Ted Drewes Frozen Custard
Celebrities from all over have come to try this world famous ice cream. The custard is so thick that you can hold your cup upside down and it won't fall out. Seriously amazing. My favorite is the Smores concrete.
2. The Arch
Ok duh. I would say if you have never been to the top and you never plan to come back to Saint Louis ever again do it. But really if you don't you're not missing out on a lot. It's a very cool view but the Arch grounds itself is nice to just walk around and explore.
3. Tropical Moose Shaved Ice
If you are here in the summer this is a must do. They have tons of flavors and you can mix as many as you like. My favorite is Pink Champagne Fizz with nerds.
4. Forest Park
The bigger, better Central Park...yes I said it. The Zoo is free and amazing, Art Hill is a perfect spot for a picnic, the Boathouse offers kayaks and paddleboats for rental, there are two golf courses, the Muny (an outdoor live theater), and honestly so many other things to discover for yourself. It's beautiful and most of it is free so it is a perfect way to spend a nice day outside.
5. So Many Amazing Restaurants I Can't Name Them All
I am not exaggerating. There are so many different restaurants that must be tried when visiting Saint Louis it probably can't be done in a couple days.
6. Imos Pizza
Saint Louis style pizza. It's delicious. Just don't knock it until you try it.
7. Toasted Ravioli
Fried ravioli. Seriously...amazing.
