It’s hard to believe that another school year is up, and the kids are beginning their summer break. With it being a pretty long school year, we normally wait a couple of weeks before we start making plans as to some destinations we like to visit on vacation. Generally, we always focus on places like the beach or the mountains to spend some quality, family time with each other. Whenever we go on trips, I really don’t mind driving a long distance because we all love viewing all the scenery along the way and this year I have my eyes on heading to the Midwest. Whenever you’re speaking about the Midwest, there are many places that I would love to visit and one place I’ve always wanted to visit is St. Louis. One of the more intriguing places about St. Louis is the Gateway Arch because it’s synonymous with the city of St. Louis. There are many other reasons as to why St. Louis should be your next vacation destination with your family.
One of the first things to come to mind when visiting St. Louis is the amount of things to do with your family when you visit. My kids love posting amazing things on SnapChat or Instagram for their friends to see and the Gateway Arch is something that would be amazing to see in person. The Gateway Arch is a great way to start your trip, but the Gateway to the West have so much more like a great zoo, six flags, the museum, outdoor adventures and you have to catch a Cardinals game because they’re one of the best franchises in all of sports. Here are many kid-friendly things to do when you visit the Gateway to the West.
If your family is like mine, then you have taken vacations with other families and the Gateway City would be a perfect spot to do this. They have a plethora of things to do, whether it’s for the kids, entire family or maybe some adult time during the night. You can view 25 places to visit in St. Louis and I’m certain that you will find so many things to do that you may have to plan another trip just to hit every spot on the list.
