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.

Boeing Store

Reviewed By OpieF15E - Boise, Idaho

Pretty cool little shop across the street from Boeing in St. Louis. Had lots of Boeing stuff from hats to coffee mugs to mouse pads. Model airplanes, you name it, they have it. Bring your plastic, as it's not inexpensive. Right now that are celebrating 100 years of Boeing, so there are daily specials. Have fun. Recommended.

Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park

Reviewed By stlmommyof3 - Creve Coeur, MO

This park has amazing walking trails both paved and dirt, a huge lake with a sandy shore, and neighborhood deer. There are several boat docks, although large motors are not allowed on the lake. You can rent bikes, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc. There are several restrooms and porta potties strategically placed around this park too. Frisbee golf is available along with a huge staircase great for getting your heart pumpin'. There are several entries and parking is ample although people do park in the grass during events and popular days in summer. Two children's play areas are located in the "upper" areas of the park along with an archery range and Go Ape treetop adventures. Wild life is abundabt and the fishing is great.

Boenker Hill Vineyard and Winery

Boenker Hill Vineyards & Winery is located in Bridgeton, Missouri and is the only winery in St. Louis County. We invite you to sit back, relax and taste a sampling of the "Wines of Missouri" in our tasting room.

This winery is hidden in Bridgeton! Although its "in town", once you step on the grounds you are transported. Beautiful scenery, not a massive winery but indeed very pretty and welcoming. Our evening (last friday) consisted of live jazz for the night-which was a saxophonist who was incredible! We bought a bottle of white wine, and it was just fabulous. The owners and staff take pride in their winery and really want you to have a great time. I want to say that there were all different types of people here, old, middle and young, all races, all sorts of ages and even some kids running around-and everyone was friendly, talkative and out for a good time. It was a great! At the end of the night, one of the owners walked me and my companion to my car and filled us with stories of Boenker Hill. The night was spectacular and we will be back. Honestly it was delightful!

Dan's Emerald Forest

Reviewed By Lorin G - Saint Louis, Missouri

This is a very unusual attraction. It is a garden railroad in the front yard of a home. It is there all year, but at the holidays it takes on a special glow. Six trains whiz by in amazing settings, and during the holidays in December, special scenery is added to denote the time of year. And best of all, it is free! It is especially good to take small children. They are dazzled by the display.

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course

It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’. That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!) The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

Reviewed By sattelite10 - St Charles,Missouri

I bought this adventure for my adult daughter and two grandsons not realizing it was more obstacle course than zip line. In fact there are only 5 zip lines which end each segment of tree top challenges . There has to be one adult for every two kids under 16, which is a good idea since basically there is no help while navigating in the tree tops.
Participants are given 30 minutes of instruction and handle all their own harness equipment after that, unlike other zip line venues, including the one I did at age 70 quite easily. Here, you need incredible balance, and nerve to step from one swinging small log to another, or to step from one swinging ring to another to cross. Luckily my daughter was up for the challenge of keeping up with her two boys, and they had the adventure of a lifetime. The staff was not seen wandering around in case help was needed, possibly because it was so cold? However each person is given an emergency whistle if needed. They all loved it, but all felt the strain on their muscles for a couple days.

Lewis and Clark Boat House and Nature Center

A museum dedicated to the journey of explorers Lewis & Clark.

Reviewed By herestoadventures - Fishers, Indiana

Skip this. Museum is totally kitschy and definitely not worth the admission price. The reproduction keelboat and the reproduction pirogue would be interesting if you could actually see them behind the tall iron fence.
