Moving to a new city is exciting and challenging. Once you have unpacked the boxes and are settled into your all inclusive, temporary housing, it’s time to get out, stretch your legs and explore the city. Fortunately, St. Louis offers many attractions. Perhaps the largest concentration of free attractions is in Forest Park. Here’s a list of a few activities to get you started:
Culture, culture, culture – Forest Park boasts five world class cultural venues. Most of these institutions offer free admission. Whether you’re looking for a Monet or a Meerkat, Forest Park can accommodate!
Missouri History Museum – www.mohistory.org
The Muny (outdoor musical theater) – www.muny.org
St. Louis Art Museum – www.slam.org
St. Louis Science Center – www.slsc.org

Take a walk – Forest Park boasts miles of graveled and paved bike and hiking trails. Winding through groves of trees and along cool water ways, the trails of Forest Park are a taste of nature in the middle of the city. If you’re a photography enthusiast, be sure to bring your favorite camera to the park and enjoy a landscape full of beauty.
Traverse the water – The Boat House offers hourly paddle boat and canoe rental for a romantic date or a fun afternoon with the kids.
