St. Louis, MO

Recently, we went on a last minute trip to St. Louis with the family for Christmas. Adam’s family used to live in St. Louis so it was fun to explore their old city! We packed in a lot of fun activities in the 2 days that we were there. Here are the pics from our trip and info about where we went/ what we did 🙂

Gateway Arch National Park

We went inside the arch and looked around at the Museum of Western Expansion. Then, we took the elevator ride to the top of the arch. It was a beautiful view of the city!

We did a tour and walked around the whole brewery campus. It was cool to learn about the company and the beer making process. Not to mention the old buildings were beautiful!

My favorite part of the tour by far was the stable! It was amazing to see the Budweiser Clydesdale horses and the dalmation doggie

The City Museum

It’s pretty hard to explain this place! It is a giant warehouse with a bunch of random art, cave systems, slides, and crazy activities. It was quite the adventure and you should go experience it if you ever get the chance 🙂

I’m thankful to have a family who is down to go on a last minute vacation and make the most of the short time we had! If you’re ever curious about going to St. Louis, you should go! It’s such a short drive and there are so many fun things to do!

 

Love,
