St. Louis Union Station

Once a bustling hub of railway activity, this station has been renovated to restore its stunning architecture, and it is now a busy attraction for tourists and locals. People flock here to eat at the different restaurants, shop in the marketplace and enjoy free entertainment events. There is a lake, complete with fish and turtles, where you can ride a paddleboat. Kids of all ages will be delighted with the carousel and Ferris wheel. A 10-screen movie theater is also on site, and the station plays host to many events and festivals throughout the year.

Laclede's Landing

The district is named after Pierre Laclede, the man who founded St. Louis. Amuse yourself by walking on the cobblestone streets or, if you are feeling bold, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy the view of the riverboat casinos on the Mississippi. There are several restaurants to choose from, and when the weather permits, you can dine outside and listen to the street musicians. Partake in a dinner theater show at the Royal Dumpe, which is actually a lot better than the name implies.

Cahokia Mounds

The spirit of pre-Columbian North America lives on at this historic site by the Mississippi river. This site marks what was once a thriving abode of the Mississippian people; a large city that is believed to have covered about six square miles (15.54 square kilometers). Today, the ancient city's remnants include 80 mounds, that provide a fascinating glimpse into this largest pre-Columbian archaeological site on the continent north of Mexico. Interesting artifacts are displayed in the world class museum/interpretive center on site.

In the 1850s, Ulysses S. Grant began farming this land, which is now a tourist attraction and a home to many exotic and endangered animals.
