  • Purina Farms
    Set in Purina's spacious Visitor Center and surrounding premises, the five-day event lets fall-fanatic families usher in seasonal scares and crunchy leaves with autumnal activities such as tractor-drawn hayrides, storytelling, meet-and-greets with friendly witches, and magic shows by performers from the International Brotherhood of Magicians. In keeping with Purina's roots as a purveyor of kinship between people and pets, youngsters can feast their primary head orbs on live farmyard animals, duck herding demonstrations, cow-milking displays, and costumed canines competing in a series of flying disc, agility, and diving contests. Bring the entire family or the gaggle of mischievous, otherworldly imps living in your basement for refreshing fall fun.

  • Crown Ridge
    Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary, a USDA–approved big-cat rescue facility, plays motherly host to a roaring family composed of five tigers and a lone lioness with a sultry swagger. Adopting philanthropists can align with their striped or unstriped spirit animal, choosing from noble felines such as the elder Mohan—a white male tiger with blue eyes, a pink nose, and a natural screen presence—or Raja—the relentlessly caring mother of sisters Gracie and Thor.

  • Riverside Wildlife Center
    Although it's only a 50-minute drive from St. Louis, Riverside Wildlife Center is a world away. The US Department of Agriculture?licensed indoor and outdoor facility houses more than 400 wild animals, ranging from some of the world's largest cats to exotic birds. Guests can stand 4 feet away from lions and tigers to meet them nearly face-to-face or snap photos of the center's 9-foot alligator. They can also hold, feed, and play with dozens of other creatures, including baby alligators, frogs, snakes, and turtles.

  • Brookdale Farms
    Though most people hate the feeling of getting lost, that?s the point behind spending a day at the maze at Brookdale Farms. Not because the staff wants guests to wander aimlessly, but because the maze makes for a great way to enjoy the autumn sunshine at a relaxed pace and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Open as a family-friendly jaunt during the day and as a haunted attraction at night, the maze tests navigators? skills and affords a rare view into how scarecrows live when they think no one is looking. Outside the maze, the farm offers other autumnal activities such as pumpkin slingshots, pony rides, adrenaline-pumping ziplines, and a hay jump, inviting families to spend a full day disconnected from their televisions, computers, and employer-mandated tracking devices. The farm also has its very own pumpkin patch, where children and adults can pick their own pumpkins, especially after a nice hayride.

  • Butterfly House
    The tri-pronged value of the Triceratops tickets guarantees daytime admission—rain or shine or airborne toxic event—to the DinoQuest exhibit in the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron, a half-acre geodesic dome filled with pools and waterfalls, along with tropical rainforest florae and faunae. You'll also enjoy admission to the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden, as well as the coordinated Jurassic Bugs exhibit at the Butterfly House. The Climatron and Children's Garden must be visited on the same day; when you redeem your Groupon at the Botanical Garden and Children’s Garden, you will receive a pass to the Butterfly House, which may be redeemed on a separate date from the first two exhibits.

  • 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.

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.

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.
