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

Being Outside

by Patricia on April 7, 2015

in In Saint Louis

I am really glad that the weather is so nice. It started to warm up during spring break and has continued since. Although it snowed last week and I wasn’t too happy about that, the nice weather has come back and I think it will stay. After all, I don’t think it will snow in April. Fortunately, the weather allows us to do fun things outside, such as going to the zoo. My favorite thing at the zoo is the penguin exhibit.

Spring break is finally here!.. almost. For most of us, it starts as soon as classes are done today (Thursday). It seems like the semester just started but at the same time a lot of us are ready for this break. There are some challenges, however, that many of us face. I still have a work schedule to stick to, my spring break doesn’t mean I get to take off work too, and after all the bills are paid my wallet is definitely looking a little thin. That translates into a trend that’s become popular all over America, a staycation. The good news is that there is so much to do in St. Louis and a lot of it is either free or really cheap.

St. Louis has some fun places to visit and most of them are free! The art museum, history museum, science center, Grants Farm, the zoo, Cahokia Mounds (technically in IL but still close to the city), the Arch, Laumeier Sculpture Park, Forest Park, Tower Grove Park, and every other park in the city/county. There are even several things to do that don’t cost much. The Botanical Gardens only costs $4-$5 to get in, City Museum is $12 and $10 after 5pm, and STL Cinemas has a whole list of local movie theaters that don’t charge an arm and a leg for tickets (some even have student discount days).

Another plus for this spring break week is that the weather is forecasted to be beautiful! 50s-60s and sunny. It’ll be a refreshing change from all the freezing cold and snow we’ve been having. The warm weather will also be perfect for those outdoor activities like the Botanical Gardens and hiking in the parks. Some local restaurants and cafes might even open up their patios, which, as many city residence know, is always a draw when looking for a good place to eat. If you need more ideas the Riverfront Times has a lot of great events listed on their website or in their magazine (which is freely distributed all over the city). So get out there and do something fun in your area this coming week! Cheers!

“s/o all the country folk”

by Alumni Posts February 24, 2015

It’s almost time for warm weather! I’m thinking another month and half until the climate warms up and swimming pools get uncovered, making people break out their shorts and tank tops! We all like the warmer weather, especially after seeing the crazy winter we’ve had this year. In STL, there are no beaches or movie […]

Plans for this Spring

by Patricia February 24, 2015

I have many plans for this spring. I’m very excited to wear items from my spring wardrobe since I’m getting really tired of wearing winter clothes. I can’t wait to go shopping for my Easter dress either. I also want to get some nice sandals, preferably with bows. I would really like to enjoy the […]

Advice From a Fontbonne Griffin

by Alumni Posts April 9, 2012

With Spring’s arrival and the number of weeks of college left getting smaller and smaller, I have began to reflect on how my first year at Fontbonne University has been so far, and what advice I might have to others (all you readers out there!). While at Fontbonne, I would definitely urge everyone to get […]

This has been a great week! The weather is finally starting to look like Spring, so my wife and I started off the week by going to the zoo. We visited all of our favorite animals, like the new baby lion who was chomping on a big bone. Kenzi, the baby elephant was adorable as […]

The Great Forest Park

by Alumni Posts March 5, 2012

My absolute favorite overall place in St. Louis has got to be Forest Park. In terms of things to do, it has so much to offer, beginning with the award-winning St. Louis Zoo, which I might add is one of just a few zoos across the country that are FREE! They have added a lot […]
