I thought for this blog I would highlight my favorite thing about St. Louis. Many of my favorite things came to mind and they all had one thing in common they are free. This spring everyone should make a commitment to check out the amazing amount for free activities available in St. Louis.
There are the common ones many located in Forest Park such as the Zoo, The Science Center, Missouri History Museum and The Art Museum (The art museum has extended hours until 9:00om on Friday nights!!!!). Did you know the Muny has free seats available, this years shows include Singin’ in the Rain, Legally Blonde and Little shop of Horrors. I enjoyed Annie, Peter Pan and Cats from these seats as a child…Ah, fond memories. Another great free event is The Shakespear Festival held in Forest Park each spring. This year is going to be a production of “The Taming of the Shrew.” This is on my list.
One of my favorite places to take a walk in the spring is Laumeier Sculpture park. The park is beautiful with sculptures all around and tucked in off wooded trails.
If you want to go even more modern The Contemporary Art Museum may be more your speed, and it’s free every Wednesday and Saturday.
If beer is more your speed than art St. Louis has some free stuff for you too. Anhueser-Busch Brewery gives free tours of the brewery for those fans 21 and up. Every Friday-Sunday Schlafly Bottleworks gives a free tour of their brewery complete with samples.
I’m sure this just scratches the surface of all the great free things there are to do around town especially with spring here.
