Forest Park

Are you ready for this rain to stop like I am?  Well, to have some fun while it rains here are some ideas to do around St. Louis to make the rainy day blues to go away!

  1. Visit the Art Museum-Free
  2. Walk around the History Museum-Free
  3. Explore at the Science Center-Free
  4. Crawl around at the St. Louis City Museum-$12 for adults
  5. Embrace the greenery at the Jewel Box in Forest Park- $1 per person!

If you have not been to any of these places I highly recommend going! So what are you waiting for? Put on some rain boots and check out these fun places!

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??

If anyone has been on Snapchat the last week or so, you have probably seen the flags that are on Art Hill in Forest Park in Saint Louis. Over 7,000 flags have been placed in Forest Park to honor the lives of 7,000 fallen soldiers from wars from Afghanistan and Iraq and never made it back home to their families.

Overwhelming is the only word that I can use to describe the experience of walking through the flags at sunset. The lights have come on and illuminate the flags as they steadily blow in the wind. It is heart wrenching to go up to the various flags and seeing the dog tags and image of the fallen soldier that the given flag represents. The fountains in the Great Basin provides a steady background noise to accompany the somber ambiance that fills the park.

Although the display was only up for a few days, it was a moving display of public art and act of remembrance for the soldiers who gave their lives for our country since the tragic events of 9/11.

Summer in STL

by Claire on April 28, 2016

in In Saint Louis

Sad to say this is my last post for the 2015-2016 school year, but I am happy that is almost summer in STL! There are so many things to do in Saint Louis from May to August, so I thought I’d share some ideas with you!

1. Go to the boathouse and ride paddleboats


2. Go to the Zoo


3. Walk around in the Loop or Central West End and grab a bite to eat


4. Go to the Art or History Museum when it is too hot to be outside


5. See the Arch and go inside when construction is complete


6. Go to Crown Candy and cool off with a great milkshake


7. Go to Six Flags or a waterpark


8. Go to the City Museum and let your little kid self out

These are just a few of the things I will be doing this summer and you should too!! Remember to have fun this summer and not have to worry about the stress and anxieties of school for a few months. Good luck to all on finals and taking summer classes.

See ya in the Fall, Fonty!

XOXO,
Claire

Favorite Time of Year

by Fontbonne University October 26, 2015

Of all the seasons in the midwest, I have to say that autumn is hands down my favorite one. The weather has cooled down from the hot weather of summer, but hasn’t hasn’t become the unbearable cold of winter. Everything is crisp and there’s a riot of color everywhere. One of my favorite activities in […]

Fall at Fontbonne University

by Claire October 26, 2015

Fall is my favorite season in Saint Louis. Although this is very stereotypical, you really cannot beat a Saint Louis fall. It is not too cold and not too hot. It is a nice mix of switching back and forth between shorts and jeans and each day is a new adventure when trying to figure […]
