  • Saint Louis Zoo
    From the black widow spiders to the massive grizzly bear, all of the creatures at The Saint Louis Zoo showcase the beauty and diversity of the natural world. At the same time, they encourage guests to learn about the world's ecosystems, and the importance of protecting species under threat. Size: 90 landscaped acres house nearly 20,000 animals, representing more than 800 species from every continent except Atlantis. Permanent Mainstay: As its name implies, the 1904 World's Fair Flight Cage pays homage to the Louisiana Purchase Exposition's?popular aviary. This aviary inspired the creation of the Saint Louis Zoo, and today, the Flight Cage surrounds visitors with a flurry of North American bird species. Eye Catcher: Sea Lion Sound includes a 35-foot underwater viewing tunnel, where guests can watch the marine mammals swimming overhead and all around them. Don't Miss: The immersive River's Edge area mirrors the wild with breathtaking accuracy. As they walk along the winding path, explorers observe African wild dogs, black rhinos, and hippos?both above and below the water. Hop Aboard: Taking visitors on a 20-minute, round-trip tour of the zoo, the Emerson Zooline Railroad includes educational narration as the train travels past some of the most popular animal exhibits. Hands-On Experience: The Monsanto Insectarium's Not Home Alone exhibit includes replicas of a kitchen, porch, and garden, encouraging visitors to search through drawers and cabinets while learning more about common household critters.

  • Adventure Oasis Water Park
    Under the oppressive heat of the Missouri sun, rafts and their passengers float atop the languid current of Coyote Creek as it traces a 900-foot perimeter around Adventure Oasis Water Park's flooded playscape. The sprawling park offers a respite from the summer swelter with water activities and attractions for guests of all ages, highlighted by three towering slides, including the Sidewinder—a 308-foot raft slide—and the Scorpion, a tube slide that emulates passage through a cosmic wormhole or gigantic piece of penne pasta with a 197-foot plunge. The chutes bottom out in a placid pool, where guests can catch their breath or scale Cactus Climb, a climbing wall that hangs over the water. As grownups relax in a deck dotted with striped parasols, younger guests can run amok at Halfpint Paradise, a smaller playground stationed in a shallow pool. A 25-yard lap pool with multiple lanes awaits more serious swimmers at Roadrunner Pass, which also boasts a diving board for those looking to perfect their swan-dive form or execute the world's first pool cannonball that actually explodes. In addition to free-range fun, Adventure Oasis's friendly waters host swim lessons and aquatic exercise programs.

  • Columbia Academy of Music
    When a school of music also contains a live-performance venue, it?s an indicator that the lessons stick. Such is the case with the Columbia Academy of Music, where private practice rooms sit just steps from The Bridge, a club accustomed to welcoming musical talent from down the street and around the country. A stage within range of instruction can inspire even the most stage-frightened students to step into the spotlight, where they?ll get the hands-on, feet-on stage experience that renders books worthless. The academy?s tuneful staffers are no strangers to this kind of public performance?some instructors have shared the stage with the likes of Chuck Berry, Sting, and Hank Williams III?but many also are experts in what goes on behind the music. In lessons tailored for all ages, skill sets, and music-making manners, the school strengthens the confidence of budding musicians in once-a-week sessions. Instrument instruction infuses students with techniques across a range of musical genres; audio-production and engineering courses teach students how to make solid records and tolerate most singers? misguided requests for more Steak-Umms in the monitor.

  • Paradise Park Kansas City
    Paradise Park started its life as a simple miniature-golf course in 1992. Since then, the park has grown with Lee's Summit, mirroring the suburb's population growth with additions that have turned it into a sprawling temple to family fun. Outdoors, guests can still show off their putts and best gopher impressions on the miniature-golf course, or head over to the go-kart track to face off against fellow drivers on a 1,000-foot road-inspired course. Inside the park's huge indoor area, kids play and learn at the Children's Edutainment Center or blast each other with air-propelled balls at the Foam Factory. A game room harks back to the arcades of old with token-fed classics such as Ms. Pac-Man, as well as offering new amusements including a SpongeBob SquarePants game.
