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.

Reviewed By franannRP - Rohnert Park, California

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.

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!

Antique Mall of Creve Coeur

Reviewed By DJH2010 - Saint Charles, Missouri

We have visited this antique mall a couple times a year for several years. There are multiple booths. They have a sale every February and August. The staff is friendly and helpful. We always find something of interest. I like postcards and Missouri postmarks. There are two booths that always have a lot of postcards; and reasonably priced. We will continue to return a couple times a year.

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.

Reviewed By beautybrainsbooty

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!

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.

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.

St. Louis Carousel at Faust Park

Reviewed By 718joyceg - Framingham, Massachusetts

One highlight of our trip to Chesterfield was a visit to the Carousel at Faust Park. Our grandchildren enjoyed picking a horse of their choice and taking a ride on this antique carousel. It brought back memories of our own childhood to both my husband and I when we rode on the carousel in Forest Park, N.Y. We also enjoyed listening to the beautiful carousel music and enjoyed some photo opportunities both inside the carousel building and outside in Faust Park. There is also a small souvenir shop and a large room available to rent for functions.

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

Reviewed By SerenityRose52 - Bowling Green KY

First time at this venue. Really enjoyed my first outside concert. Prices for the drink and food booths WAY, WAY, WAY TOO HIGH..... We paid extra for skip the line passes, which was not needed when using the shuttle service from the Casino.... Better Security is needed. Meaning better Checks at gates and more security patrol at venue area. No one around to control out of control people....... was surprised at the young children at this concert. Though it was great that such young ages are into classic rock, but due to the very very very strong sMell of _______________ it probably would not of been my choice for a family Concert with young children........ Not sure if free parking is an option. When we ordered the Concert tickets there was a pacage offered for $30 parking per car. We chose to pay $10 per person for shuttle service. Was very pleased. No long waiting in line to get to and from the Concert.

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.
