Summer Suggestions!

by Courtney on April 25, 2017

in In Saint Louis

With summer break so near, do you know your plans yet?  If not, here are some suggestions for a fun filled summer!

  1. Go on a road trip! If you are from St. Louis, you can take a road trip and visit Chicago or if you want to just make a day out of it, drive along Great River Road in Alton, IL where you will see beautiful landscapes and make stops along the way to get ice cream.
  2. Volunteer! What better way to take advantage of the summer weather than to volunteer outside.  There are many St. Louis nonprofit organizations that have community gardens that you can help out with.  Plus, it will boost your resume!
  3. Attend a farmer’s market!  It is a lot of fun to buy inexpensive, locally grown produce at farmer’s markets all over St. Louis.  I especially enjoy the one in Kirkwood.  Most even allow you to sample the food before you buy it.  Some even have food trucks, snow cones, and live bands that you can make a day out of it!

Game of Thrones reference…geddit? 😉

So, with summer right around the corner, I’m feeling the need to create a list of all the things I want to do when we get hit with the full force of the St. Louis heat. I went for a really long walk around Forest Park today and it made me miss the sunshine…our winter wasn’t too bad, but it seemed quite long. I’m glad for the weather change, and it’s got me inspired!

I think the first five things I’m going to tackle when summer in the Lou hits are as follows:

(1) Cards game. This is a must. I need those totchos, and I love being at Busch Stadium, especially at night…it’s just such an electric atmosphere.
(2) Fitz’s. Handcrafted soda just sounds so much better in the summer.
(3) FLOAT TRIP. Need I say more?!
(4) Walking around Historic St. Charles with some Kilwin’s ice cream…it’s killer, and so is the river view.
(5) LAY OUT. It is time once again to soak up the sun. I can’t wait!

What are some of your plans for the summer??

xoxo

I moved to St. Louis around six years ago. Before that, I had lived in Indiana, Oklahoma, Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Even though each place has had their own feel and culture, St. Louis has always surprised me with its spunk, heritage, and overall feel.

St. Louis has an interesting image. It is a big city and considers itself to be. However, the city often feels separate from other cities such as Chicago or New York. It is often overlooked and overshadowed. Living here for a while though, I have realized how underrated St. Louis is and why it shouldn’t be.

First of all, St. Louis is one of the best foodie cities in America. This may come as a surprise to people, but St. Louis has a great selection of food from all over the world. Wallethub placed St. Louis as the 7th best foodie city in America in 2016. Even after living here for several years, I am always finding new and exciting restaurants all across the city. There are Bosnian restaurants, unique ice cream shops, and much more.

St. Louis also values its entertainment industry. It is not hard to not walk around St. Louis without seeing the Cardinals or Blues logo at least once. St. Louis also loves its musicians. This is clear to see by seeing the flowers and gifts left at the Chuck Berry statue on the Delmar Loop. You mention Nelly and people freak out.

St. Louis has a men’s fashion week, Forest Park (which is bigger than Central Park), the Muny. St. Louis has a beautiful City garden, a sculpture park, and much more. St. Louis is an artistic city, and most people don’t realize it.

St. Louis has been a great place to live. Whether you are moving here for a job or college, St. Louis is a great place to move to. It has a unique culture and history that makes it a fantastic place.101-HAS1-StLouisNight
