Historic District St. Charles: 16 blocks of shopping, dining and lodging in historic, restored structures on the banks of the Missouri River. Settlement dates to 1769.
Went to visit my cousin Dan Baddock who is the owner of Lewis and Clark restaurant in the Saint Charles historic district. We got there early and walked around to see the many beautiful shops. Later in the day Dan took us and introduced us to a few of the shop owners. Lovely day spent eating, drinking wine, and shopping. Also, a lovely River Walk in the park.

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.

Pretty cool little shop across the street from Boeing in St. Louis. Had lots of Boeing stuff from hats to coffee mugs to mouse pads. Model airplanes, you name it, they have it. Bring your plastic, as it's not inexpensive. Right now that are celebrating 100 years of Boeing, so there are daily specials. Have fun. Recommended.

This is a very unusual attraction. It is a garden railroad in the front yard of a home. It is there all year, but at the holidays it takes on a special glow. Six trains whiz by in amazing settings, and during the holidays in December, special scenery is added to denote the time of year. And best of all, it is free! It is especially good to take small children. They are dazzled by the display.

The Mother Church of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, the superstructure of the Cathedral was built between 1907 and 1914. The Cathedral's 100th Anniversary is being celebrated in 2014. It is known for its' beautiful interior mosaics, which took nearly 80 years to create using more than 41 million pieces of glass tesserae. The Cathedral is known for having one of the largest mosaic collections in the Western Hemisphere.
Beautiful architecture!!! If you like Catholic Churches and appreciate art work this is the place to see. Hard to imagine the amount of money the have in it.

Many outstanding cars, trucks and bikes bothe regular and motorcycle. The conditions of the restoration is high quality as are some of the prices. No pressure just walk around and look. Don't forget to go into the gift shop where you'll be amazed at all the die cast models, signs, T-shirts, Hot Wheel cars and so much more

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.

A museum dedicated to the journey of explorers Lewis & Clark.
Skip this. Museum is totally kitschy and definitely not worth the admission price. The reproduction keelboat and the reproduction pirogue would be interesting if you could actually see them behind the tall iron fence.
