Skyview Drive-In, opened in 1949, has weathered the ravages of multiple tornados, enduring as a two-screen throwback to old-school cinema. When the sun sets, the twin screens display double features of recent Hollywood releases in clear digital format, while FM radio simulcasts the soundtracks. The viewing area—organized so taller cars never cut off smaller cars' sightlines—borders a playground for youngsters and a concession stand with classic movie snacks. Celebrating its roots, the theater occasionally hosts class classic car (defined as 1987 or older) night where the driver is admitted free. For first-timers, Skyview Drive-In offers thorough responses to FAQs.

Since swinging open its doors in 1965, Rock Roll-O-Rena has provided a safe hub for lacing up and rolling around or simply kicking back with friends and family. Second-generation owners Glen and Jo Donna Neifert keep the facility in top shape, sending skaters gliding across the hard maple floor as speakers shell out top 40 tunes.
Off the rink, bleacher seating, a fully stocked concession stand, and arcade games divert attention from unhip physicists lecturing skaters on centripetal force, and air conditioning maintains a cooler atmosphere during the summer months. Dedicated to keeping the community strong, Rock Roll-O-Rena also offers a strong incentive for youngsters to keep up their grades, trading a discount pass for each A on a report card not earned by staining it with alphabet soup.

On a normal day at Climb So iLL, climbers scale a giant unblinking eyeball, an eyeless purple elephant, and a giant tulip reaching toward the sky. These structures, inspired by Lewis Carroll and created by an architectural firm, reflect the gym’s unique aesthetic and a whimsical vision. The walls range in color from slate gray to neon yellow and purple, and accent lighting adds to snaking mezzanine levels and a well-stocked pro shop. The gym's modern design, which includes countertops crafted from bamboo and recycled car hoods, blends into the original brick interior of the old power plant—from which designers salvaged steel and other debris to fashion the interior.
On each guest's first visit, a staff member escorts them around the facility to get them acquainted with safety protocol. Climbers scale 40 lead ropes hung down from walls reaching up to 55 feet, along with smooth angles and overhangs across varied bouldering terrain. In an enclosed 24-hour training zone, they can practice navigating small overhangs and other problems. On-site personal trainers and instructors also help hone skill and movement techniques through basic belaying and lead climbing classes. An accredited route-setting team regularly tampers with the gym's routes to keep climbers alert and extra gecko-like. An advanced ventilation system circulates and cools the air by maintaining a constant indoor pressure, and tall windows and skylights keep vertical pathways well-lit.

St. Louis County Parks and Recreation awakens the active side in community members with a bevy of sites and facilities dedicated to sports, outdoor exploration, and kid-friendly fun. Families splash away the summer heat with trips to the pool at the Kennedy Recreation Complex or the St. Vincent Community Center water park, where adults can swim laps in two 25-yard lanes while tykes descend an open water slide and practice their manners at underwater tea parties. The six recreation complexes serve as hubs for everything from fitness classes to ice-skating, and offer a diverse blend of indoor and outdoor activities. For more relaxing amusement, the stewards of the parks and recreation department maintain multiple museums and historic sites as well as outdoor trails, where voyagers can get in touch with nature and add to their collection of acorns that resemble former presidents.
