Family Vacations & Getaways Family Vacations & Getaways

DH and I are planning a trip to St. Louise for our anniversary in January.  Please if you live here or been recommend a place to stay, eat and sight see.  We plan to be there from Thursday to Sunday.  We don't gamble, drink, or go to club.  But we love theater, museums and such.

Thanks in advance.

 

Update

First let me thank you all again for your help. DH and I went last weekend to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. We're from Indy so we're close to both Springfield, IL and St. Louis, MO.

Thursday we drove to Springfield to visit the Lincoln Museum. IT WAS AWESOME! I think we agree it is the best museum we've been to so far and we've been to many. If it was a warmer day we would have seen other things as well. We then drove to St. Louis to check in our hotel.

Friday we went to the arch and walked to the old court house. We ate at Pappy's. Loved our meal! That night we saw Wicked. It was good! The Fox Theater is beautiful!!!

Saturday we went to the Budweiser tour. Although we don't drink alcohol we enjoyed the tour. We got to see the Clydesdale. I was really impressed with how huge and clean that place was. We also visited the Thomas Jefferson Historical museum. On our way there we witnessed an accident where a car flipped and landed upside down. I had to call 9-1-1 and my husband helped assist the person get out. THANK GOD it wasn't fatal.

Overall we like St. Louis. I'm glad we went and probably will take a family trip there in the near future.

I'm just now seeing your comment. First of all sorry if I offended you in the spelling it was a simple mistake. Secondly dh and I figured it out. No we did not stay downtown. We did see Wicked.

Hello just want you to know we took your advice and went to Springfield on our way to St. Louis. I updated my post if you're interested. The farm was the only thing we didn't do. It was a little too cold. St. Louis offers a lot of free things to do. We decided we will take our girls one weekend when it's warmer. Again thanks. We had a lot of fun.

Quoting ddhb2007:

  1. the Arch
  2. Tour the Budweiser brewery
  3. Visit Grant's Farm
  4. go to Springfield, IL to see Lincoln's presidential museum (2 hours away)
