City Museum

It feels like almost yesterday that I was laying out, jammin’ out, and studying my heart out on campus. Oh wait, that was yesterday! With an exception to a few evenings, STL weather has been incredible!

What is there to do in STL on beautiful days like these!? Plenty..

You can take a walk in Forest Park, visit the famous city museum playground, find a lake to go fishing, find a bar to go fishing (if you’re 18 years & up), take a trip to the St. Louis Zoo, attend one of Fontbonne University’s baseball, softball, lacrosse or golf outings, shop downtown Clayton or the Galleria Mall, walk to Knoll park which is just across the street from FU, find a place to build a bonfire, find a place to not build a bon fire and save the environment, take your significant anywhere and everywhere, message me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (@evanj_247) and I will personally, yes, personally assist you in finding something to do around STL. The possibilities are endless.. The End..

YOLO” – it really is a good quote when you actually think about it..


Okay, I’ve lived in Saint Louis my whole life, and I love my city! Wouldn’t trade it for the world. As you can imagine, I also have a list of places that I LOVE to go when I have free time. I would list them all but we don’t have a billion years to spare here so… Anywho, I’m gonna give you my top 5 favorite places that I love in the city. Here we go!

1. Coldstone

This is the BEST ice cream on the plant! I remember the first time I had Coldstone, I thought I had literately died and gone to heaven. Why do I love this place so you ask? Well, they have like a million flavors and you can create whatever combination you cook up in your head… if you haven’t been there, I’d suggest you go… it will be worth your while.

2. CiCi’s Pizza

This is another one of favorite places. To all of us broke and struggling (I put the emphasis on struggling here) college kids, this place is truly a god send. Not only is CiCi’s an economic jackpot, it’s really good and everything you’ll ever want out of an Italian meal. You get pizza, pasta, salad, and dessert. Trust me, it’s endless.  Did I mention it was a buffet?

3. Aquaport

Everybody loves a good water park right? Well this aquatic playground isn’t going to disappoint. When the summers are hot and sticky (and they will be) You’ll will want to move to Aquaport and never ever leave. I’ve been there almost every year since I was ten, and I’ve loved every minute of it! This Place has double floaties, a ton of water slides, and of course the lazy river! Go there people, you won’t regret it!

4. Lotta Watta Creek

People love good food (well at least I do) and Lotta Watta Creek is certainly a place to check out if you do. Not only does this restaurant have great food from every category, the portions there are HUGE!! I kid you not, ONE cheese stick will fill you up and you will end up taking the rest home… trust me.

5. City Museum

It’s awesome! That is all.


These last few weeks of school have been a lot of fun. Fontbonne is trying to squeeze in all the last minute activities, and I am gladly signing up for as many as I can. Tonight, I and a few of my friends went on a free trip to the City Museum. Like I said in a previous blog, Fontbonne is really good about offering free events, and you should definitely take advantage of them! Anyway, the City Museum trip was loads of fun! It’s not like a normal museum, it’s more of an enormous playground! And everything is made from recycled materials. They have a tunnel from McDonald’s and a bunch of tunnels made of scrap metal and concrete. There are slides everywhere — even one that is ten stories high! They also have two real planes and a bus in the outdoor section. The planes were really cool, but the bus was on the roof, which was closed, so I didn’t get to see it. I’ve been to the City Museum a few times before, and the roof is always closed! I need to see what’s up there soon! But even without seeing the roof, I had a lot of fun! When we got back to the school, they provided us with Ted Drewe’s ice cream. Unfortunately, I was feeling a little queasy from running around so much, so I didn’t have any ice cream, but I’m feeling much better now. And the experience was totally worth it! It was great to take a break from studying for awhile, but now it’s time to crack down for finals. Wish me luck :)
