  • 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.

  • Grant's Farm
    Grant's Farm has been home to two titans of the US—one a general and president, the other a brewer who forever changed America's bar scene. The first of these was the farm's namesake, President Ulysses S. Grant, who in 1885 built a four-room cabin, needing only a few days, the help of some loyal friends, and an '80s-style montage. After a few transitional owners, August Busch Sr. bought the farm in 1907 and had that same cabin restored to its original condition. While visitors to Grant Farm can still view that historic cabin today, the grounds have grown into much, much more. More than 280 acres host over 900 animals from 100 unique species, one of which has starred in commercials for decades: the Budweiser Clydesdales. A behind the scenes tour of the Clydesdale Stables reveals more than 50 of these stallions, from weanlings to full-grown, six-foot-tall equines. Meanwhile, Zebras, Black Buck Antelope, and other exotic animals roam across Deer Park, and Tier Garten hosts interactive elephant shows and goat feedings. Back indoors, the bauernhof (farmstead) stands as a 19th-century relic with antique stables and carriages. It also houses non-antique bartenders, who pour complimentary samples for of-age visitors. They can also point families to more complete dining locations, including Grant's Farm Deli.

  • The Magic House
    Though built as a private home in 1901, the Victorian mansion stood vacant for years—until its first children's hands-on exhibits opened to the public more than 35 years ago. Since then, The Magic House's curators have worked to engage children of all ages in learning and creative thought through a range of interactive multimedia exhibits. Their exhibits enable visitors to service cars, climb treehouse ladders, and go fishing in a child-centric community, or play with pumps and pipes in a waterworks playground. They can also climb a three-story fairy-tale beanstalk or use detective skills, fingerprint analyses, and secret passageways to solve mysteries. Museum staffers also organize a range of themed birthday parties, during which attendees play and complete special tasks as time travelers, scientists, or fairy-tale nobility. Family programs encompass monthly visits from outside professional artists, and special events designed to get the whole family moving. Visitors can refuel for exploration at the on-site Picnic Basket Cafe, whose menu highlights whole grains and healthy ingredients.

  • Missouri Botanical Garden
    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.

  • 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.
