- St. Louis ZooSt Louis Zoo, Government Dr, St Louis, MO 63110, USArecommended St. Louis ZooI am spoiled by DC's free museums and zoo, and I know I am. So it was nice to see another city with free attractions! This zoo was free, and, dare I say it, better than the one here in DC. I'm not ... read moresure if it was bigger or not. It was a great experience. We saw many animals that seemed very content - especially the young orangutan, who was playing a whole lot. There were some exceptions but I thought in general the animals seemed happier than at other zoos I've been to. This zoo is well worth a visit!Recommended for:Rachel Patterson
It's a really nice zoo!
- City Museum701 North 15th Street, St. Louis, MO, United Statesrecommended City MuseumHow can you not love the City Museum? It's so crazy and amazing. It's basically a big playground. I don't think I could fit in every space, but I could fit in most of them. I loved the caves; there ... read morewere tighter squeezes than when I was actually caving! And the outdoor bit is wonderful as well. My boyfriend and his brother and I just absolutely loved this place. A must-do if you're in St. Louis.Recommended for:Rachel Patterson
Whether you have kids or you're a kid at heart, the City Museum is awesome.

- Gateway Arch707 North First Street, St Louis, MO 63102-2526recommended Gateway ArchRecommended for:recommended Gateway ArchThe Gateway Arch is a truly impressive site to behold. It is also an interesting visual juxtaposition-- a large metallic arch in a landscape of red brick industrial architecture.

- Fox Theatre and Tours541 North Grand Boulevard, St. Louis, MO, United Statesrecommended Fox Theatre and ToursI judge a city by its movie theaters. St. Louis turns out to be a sleeper-cool city because it has a number of small indie theaters, and the Fabulous Fox is one of the best--it's a beautiful old ... read moreconverted building, lovingly restored. To get the full vintage movie palace vibe, go a little early, so you can soak up all the little details--and to get various good food and drinks. The only drawback is that the actual seating area is a little harsh and concrete-ish, because it's also used for concerts, and I guess they wanted to be able to hose down the floor or something. But it's still a great place to see a film (or a show). And you can also take a guided historical tour.
- Ted Drewes Frozen Custard4224 S Grand Blvd, St Louis, MO 63111recommended Ted Drewes Frozen Custard"Frozen custard" sounds like some novel thing, but it's really just super-rich, eggy ice cream. Which is not to disparage it in any way--Ted Drewes is not "just" ice cream because it's arguably the ... read moreking of ice-cream stands in St. Louis--at least the best known nationally. It specializes in "concretes"--thick shakes with bits blended in, so thick you can tip the cup upside down. (If this sounds like a Dairy Queens Blizzard, you're totally right--I think they ripped the idea off from St. Louis.)Zora O'Neill
Likewise, ask any St. Louisian about their favorite frozen custard stand, and you'll get an earful. There's a bit of a backlash against Ted Drewes because it's _so_ famous, but it was still the best that I tried. Though of course there's always one more frozen-custard joint just over the horizon...
- World's Fair Doughnuts1904 South Vandeventer Avenue, St. Louis, MOrecommended World's Fair DoughnutsDoughnuts are automatically healthy when made by a little old man who flips each one individually in the big vat of grease. I did not know when I first went to St. Louis that it had a strong "indie" ... read moredoughnut tradition, and this is one of the most revered. The cake doughnuts are fantastic--small, nicely crusty and drizzled in sticky-crunchy glaze. Go early, and you might get some that are warm. Gah, I want one now!Zora O'Neill
To start a discussion with any native St. Louisian (is that a word?), ask about their favorite doughnut place...
- Soulard Farmer's Market730 Carroll Street, St. Louis, MO, United Statesrecommended Soulard Farmer's MarketAmazing produce and spices. Not to mention the coon, possum, and rabbit.
