Saint Louis Travel Guide (inspired by a st. louis hate post lol)
so people were poking fun at st. louis, i didnt take it to hert, but it gave me an opportunity to share what great stuff there is to do in st. louis!! (i just copied and pasted so sorry for typos)
we have this really cool building called the city museum which is basically a huge play house museum, consisting largely of repurposed artsy architectural and industrial objects!! (theres a bus that hangs off the side of the building)
we have the missouri history museum thats nationally recognized as one of the best history museums in the nation, and others museums have looked into how they get so much attraction
which the history museum in a small part of huge forest park, one of the biggest and oldest urban parks in the nation! it hosted the 1904 worlds, one of the few structures that still remains is also our nationally recognized art museum!! also home to the #1 zoo in america (USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards contest)
we have busch stadium, which doesnt have as much history as wrigley since its fairly new (2006)!! but!! across the street is also new ballpark village that has a cardinals hall of fame museum, its really cool and if ur a baseball fan, definitely a must see!! and HEY!! they occasionally hold family movie nights outside on the big screen, w movies like inside out and toy story!! and for the young crazy adults, they do have a club atmosphere at night!
and for u aesthetic flower nerds out there like me, we have the botanical gardens which every winter has a cool a** lightshow, sadly its not winter, but theres so much to do there too as well!!
not the arch but the riverboats down by the arch!! they take u on cruises up and down the Mississippi river with live music, good food, and cool views.
scottrade center home of the st. louis blues, one of the top teams in the league!! super great armosphere, LIT atmosphere when they play the hawks!!
and last but not least, a close one to millenium park would be the city gardern, where local modern art is displayed in the heart of downtown st. louis, a super cool place for families with small children! they have water geyers and cool waterfalls and lil mini pools for the kids!! its super neat in the summer, in the winter, like the botanical gardens, they display a light show every night!!

“Something calls to me/The trees are drawing me near/I’ve got to find out why…” (”Tuesday Afternoon” by the Moody Blues) I was one of many people who were “called” to Roosevelt Island on a Saturday afternoon. The Cherry Blossom Festival was the reason why:) (Photo taken on April 29, 2017)
Found a shop that had tons of records in the basement. These are only 3 aisles. There are more. I’ve never seen so many records in one shop… if you have a free few days, you might be able to get through half of the shop, but they are all unsorted so it may prove a challenge to find specific items.
This shop is located in Brooklyn, NY @ Manhattan Ave and the name of the shop is called “The Thing”. In here you will find clothes, comic books, books, possible antiques, silverware and vinyl records.
