Cruising the Mississippi River via a paddle boat is an interesting activity. I took up paddle wheel boat to cruise down the mighty Mississippi River and knowing the history of the location in the meanwhile. This leisurely cruise was very enjoyable as we had a guide with us. A dinner on the river! How exciting it was! I took up Sunday brunch cruise and went for it among so many. As there were many options in themed cruises, it was difficult to make a choice.
I heard that Forest Park of St. Louis is larger than the New York’s Central Park. As I was visiting St. Louis in the winter season, I got a chance to try ice-skating at Steinberg Skating Rink. Afternoons were spent in playing tennis, playing golf, bird watching, enjoying the nature walk. I also took up fishing activity as it was a quiet afternoon.
The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum, was another destination I wanted to head towards. Interestingly, it is the first interactive museum housed in Victorian Era mansion, and so I was sure my kids would enjoy a lot. As they are fans of Beanstalk and Jack, my kids enjoyed their climbers. They imagined being Jack and loved each moment spent in this children’s museum.
I knew that an afternoon in St. Louis can show great exhibits in the form of endangered species of animals and birds. It houses more than 18000 species of birds and animals. Here I visited exhibits like Interactive Stingray Pool, The Big Cat Country, Puffin Coast and Penguin. City Museum, the home to International Shoe Company, gave me the finest experience.
