Butterfly exhibit promoting an understanding of the nature through the world of insects.

Reviewed By stlcardinalsfamily - Peoria, Illinois

The morpho madness event is the time to go! Beautiful bright blue butterflies everywhere! definitely hot in there even in February so dress accordingly.

My only negative is that I wish there were more exhibits or learning stations for children.

Staff/volunteers do a great job. You can tell the truly appreciate the butterflies!

The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park

The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park features the home of the legendary hero Daniel Boone and his family. The four-story, Georgian style home was built in the 1800's overlooking the Femme Osage Valley. The home, even by today's standards, is still considered large. The village, located behind the home, is comprised of over a dozen 19th century buildings including the Old Peace Chapel, grist mill, schoolhouse, and carpenter's shop. Together these buildings help visitors understand life on the Missouri frontier. As a county park, visitors are welcome to walk around the grounds at their leisure. Guided tours are available of the Boone Home and/or village. Group tours and school group programs available with reservations. Not all buildings are handicap accessible. The Old Peace Chapel is available to rent for weddings and private services. The enhanced shelter is also available for evening rentals.

We weren't certain what to expect, but we left very pleased. For a informational tour about Boone, one needs to go on another day; however, to enjoy A Halloween environment based around the 1700s and 1800s, this was a pleasure. Murder ballads, ghost tales, and staff that were dressed in period pieces made the night a fun time for the boys!

Went to visit my cousin Dan Baddock who is the owner of Lewis and Clark restaurant in the Saint Charles historic district. We got there early and walked around to see the many beautiful shops. Later in the day Dan took us and introduced us to a few of the shop owners. Lovely day spent eating, drinking wine, and shopping. Also, a lovely River Walk in the park.

Castlewood State Park

In the early 1900s, the area that’s now Castlewood State Park was a popular retreat for partying St. Louisans. The dance clubs are gone, but the winding Meramec River and the lush valley that surrounds it remain. The park has hiking and mountain biking trails that range from those great for first-time riders to ones that even the most experienced will return to time after time. The park is considered one of the best mountain biking locations in the St. Louis area. Good fishing, broad meadows filled with wildlife, and plenty of recreational facilities make the park a favorite for people who want an adventure or just to get away.

Reviewed By kenmr2017 - St Louis, United States

Castlewood has really good hiking and biking trails with some great bluff overlooks. Not many "improvements" so the park is pretty much set up for hiking or river wading. It does have one playground for the kids.

Montelle Winery

Reviewed By happywanderer856 - New Jersey

Montelle Winery has commanding views and a huge deck from which to enjoy them. We ordered a couple of sandwiches and enjoyed a pleasant lunch on the deck. The sandwiches were large and delicious and were served with potato chips. Unfortunately, a number of bees were very interested in our sandwiches. We had been sitting at the edge of the deck, so we moved away and were able to finish our lunch in peace. Wine tastings are 5 samples for $5, including a souvenir wine glass.

Very interesting and worthwhile. This place is doing a good job with injured birds. I spoke with one of the workers, they were going to send two baby cranes back to a preserve in a couple of weeks. I would go back to see the educational program they have.

Reviewed By JSitko - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania

Came here with a group of co-workers for a "team-building" exercise. The guides were very capable and friendly. A few of the runs were longer than I expected and had terrific views, with top speeds approaching 40MPH. Definitely something to do if you are looking for something different.
