St. Louis

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??

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

Hello!

In this post, I would like to share about some music artists I heard this last Friday. I went to this small concert with a friend and even though we didn’t knew who was playing, we both ended up loving the bands. I have go before to this concert events, which are made by a music organization here in Saint Louis. One of the fun and interesting aspects about these concerts is that you don’t know who is playing till the day of the concert, it is always surprise, and it is so exciting! I really enjoy going to this concert, there were approximately 40 people and I could really appreciate the live music.

Three local bands performed in the concert, and I really like all of them. The first one was this girl called Hillary Fitz, which played songs with an Indie and Folk style. The second artist was Teszla, her music was very chill, electronic, and R&B, I think it was good mix of different styles. The third and last ones were Oskar and Julia, which were a married couple, and sang country music. I usually don’t hear country music, so it was cool hearing more about this music genre.

I love exploring local bands, they usually remain for a small target, but their music has always something different and original. This is something I have noticed in local bands back in my home country, Ecuador, and here in Saint Louis too. We all hear music from huge, very famous, and commercial artists, which is something amazing because they make great music. But, there is something special about local small bands that you don’t usually hear, for example, in radios or social media. This is why I really like going to small concerts, to give local music artists support, and let them know they have great talent too.

They are all on Spotify, if you are interested in listening them!!

Some pics I took 🙂

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 […]
