St. Louis a city situated on the Mississippi in Missouri has been our longest stop on the trip. Being here a week has allowed us to get a real feel for the place and enjoy most of what the city has to offer. St. Louis is also thankfully a very bike friendly city, so Anna and I were able to get around town with ease following the signed bike routes that run throughout town.
There are many and varied activities to enjoy in St. Louis -- many of which are free -- and Anna and I made use of our time here by visiting most of them. I especially enjoyed the Missouri Botanical gardens, and their Climatron was pretty brilliant. Of course a trip to the Budweiser brewery was made, where they give free tours and free tastings. And an evening at the ballpark to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Philly's was a must. But by far the most fun we had in St. Louis was at the City Museum, where the life size mouse trap amusements brought out the kid in all of us including our couchsurfing host David. We were squirming and wriggling, crawling and crouching our way through the maze of elaborate structures that make up the fantastical world that is the City Museum.
Thanks for the memories St. Louis :)
