Even though fall already started few weeks ago, I still want to share the different fun activities I have done during this season. I am not a fan of cold weather, but right now it’s kind of a mix between cold and hot so its fine.
I went apple picking for the first time and it was very fun. We had to walk through the apple orchards looking for good red or green apples. Personally, I prefer the green ones. It was really tasteful having fresh apples.
The week after apple picking I went to Eckert’s farm for the evening. It was a great day very sunny and the sunset was beautiful. There were different things to do there, like, games, giving food to kangaroos, and spending time around a warm bonfire. When the night came we had smores and hot dogs, they were delicious.
I appreciate this kind of activities that Fontbonne University offers, especially if you are not from here it is a great way to know more about St. Louis. So far I have enjoyed fall season. I can’t believe we are already in the middle of the semester, time is flying like crazy. I hope everyone is enjoying fall season too.
With it being officially fall what better to join the weather and the leaves changing colors then visiting Laumeier Sculpture Park.
One of their most recognizable sculptures.
Located off Rott Road and only 20 minutes from the Arch, Laumeier Sculpture Park is a must see! You can spend all day walking around discovering all the sculptures that this park has to offer. There is so much talent lurking around each corner and behind each tree. But, make sure to grab a map so you don’t miss anything! The park is free and open from 8 am until sunset. Oh, and did I mention it was FREE?! Take a group of friends and visit this fun and astonishing park, take lots of pictures, and even a lunch to enjoy.
Fall in Saint Louis is a special time. Walking around Forest Park and going to the Cardinal’s games are actually enjoyable and not uncomfortably hot. Walking from class to class outside and getting to feel the fall breeze encourages activity and productivity.
The feeling of fall has already swept over the Fontbonne Campus with classes meeting in the meadow and the quad and students working on projects and homework outside the AMC on a daily basis. The outside seating area of DSAC is filled with students enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with company and fresh air.
Fall in Saint Louis is a time to be alive and experience all of the great things Saint Louis has to offer, with some milder temperatures. Take a trip to the Zoo or Grant’s farm, go tour the Arch grounds or explore BallPark Village during the cool evening hours.
Fall in Saint Louis is here and I could not be more excited .
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.
