Living and going to school in St.Louis definitely has its perks. There are so many things you can do here! So, for the next couple weeks I am going to show you some of my favorite places to visit to escape the stress and homework of college. I hope you consider visiting these places too! Most of them are FREE!
First up is Creve Coeur Lake in Maryland Heights, MO. I am lucky enough to live just a few short minutes from here and took advantage of it during the summer. Here you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes for just a couple dollars an hour to take out on the lake. You can take the path that goes all the way around the lake to go bike riding or running. If you decide to go on a walk here, make sure to take a camera to take pictures of the waterfalls hidden in the woods, the deer you might encounter, or to capture the sun setting across the lake. It is a great place to escape the city life and release some stress.
