American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog

Reviewed By greenhorn33 - Saint Louis

This museum is interesting if you love dogs. It primarily consists of paintings and mini-figurines but they are fun to look at. I think this museum would be more impactful for young children if they had toys that were dog themed or other playful type items for kids.

Butterfly exhibit promoting an understanding of the nature through the world of insects.

Reviewed By stlcardinalsfamily - Peoria, Illinois

The morpho madness event is the time to go! Beautiful bright blue butterflies everywhere! definitely hot in there even in February so dress accordingly.

My only negative is that I wish there were more exhibits or learning stations for children.

Staff/volunteers do a great job. You can tell the truly appreciate the butterflies!

Castlewood State Park

In the early 1900s, the area that’s now Castlewood State Park was a popular retreat for partying St. Louisans. The dance clubs are gone, but the winding Meramec River and the lush valley that surrounds it remain. The park has hiking and mountain biking trails that range from those great for first-time riders to ones that even the most experienced will return to time after time. The park is considered one of the best mountain biking locations in the St. Louis area. Good fishing, broad meadows filled with wildlife, and plenty of recreational facilities make the park a favorite for people who want an adventure or just to get away.

Castlewood has really good hiking and biking trails with some great bluff overlooks. Not many "improvements" so the park is pretty much set up for hiking or river wading. It does have one playground for the kids.

Myseum

Discovery Center for children and their families. Fun and unique exhibits like a dinosaur dig, vet clinic, interactive video wall, slide with radar, magnetic ball wall and a giant UFO maze...just to name a few.

My wife and I took our four-year-old grandson here for a couple of hours one morning. He had a great time! The science component was beyond him, but he loved all the activities. He happily ran from the bounce house to the slide to digging...MoreThank you for the great review! Glad we could help with the extra long nap.

Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park

Reviewed By stlmommyof3 - Creve Coeur, MO

This park has amazing walking trails both paved and dirt, a huge lake with a sandy shore, and neighborhood deer. There are several boat docks, although large motors are not allowed on the lake. You can rent bikes, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc. There are several restrooms and porta potties strategically placed around this park too. Frisbee golf is available along with a huge staircase great for getting your heart pumpin'. There are several entries and parking is ample although people do park in the grass during events and popular days in summer. Two children's play areas are located in the "upper" areas of the park along with an archery range and Go Ape treetop adventures. Wild life is abundabt and the fishing is great.

The facility was modern and clean. Friendly staff provided us with a prompt start. The game we played (Casino) was enjoyed by our entire family, with everybody able to contribute with clues and ideas, including our two 13 year-olds. While we didn't need much help, there was a point where we stalled and the young lady monitoring us remotely, stepped in with just the right level of clue to get us back on track. The next time we have the family all together again, we are going back.

St. Louis Carousel at Faust Park

Reviewed By 718joyceg - Framingham, Massachusetts

One highlight of our trip to Chesterfield was a visit to the Carousel at Faust Park. Our grandchildren enjoyed picking a horse of their choice and taking a ride on this antique carousel. It brought back memories of our own childhood to both my husband and I when we rode on the carousel in Forest Park, N.Y. We also enjoyed listening to the beautiful carousel music and enjoyed some photo opportunities both inside the carousel building and outside in Faust Park. There is also a small souvenir shop and a large room available to rent for functions.

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course

It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’. That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!) The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

I bought this adventure for my adult daughter and two grandsons not realizing it was more obstacle course than zip line. In fact there are only 5 zip lines which end each segment of tree top challenges . There has to be one adult for every two kids under 16, which is a good idea since basically there is no help while navigating in the tree tops.
Participants are given 30 minutes of instruction and handle all their own harness equipment after that, unlike other zip line venues, including the one I did at age 70 quite easily. Here, you need incredible balance, and nerve to step from one swinging small log to another, or to step from one swinging ring to another to cross. Luckily my daughter was up for the challenge of keeping up with her two boys, and they had the adventure of a lifetime. The staff was not seen wandering around in case help was needed, possibly because it was so cold? However each person is given an emergency whistle if needed. They all loved it, but all felt the strain on their muscles for a couple days.
