Visiting Wall Drug : Prairie Kitsch of Presidential Proportions

Inside Wall Drug

The signs, first many miles apart, begin to appear as you cross the border into South Dakota.

Gateway Arch Riverfront, St. Louis, Missouri

I was totally unprepared for how stunning the Gateway Arch is on a sunny day. The stainless steel shone brightly in the sunlight, sparks seeming to shoot from the angles as the sun hit them just right. I was happy just sitting beneath the arch enjoying the vertigo as I watched the clouds float swiftly […]

St. Louis Zoo in Forest Park

Who doesn’t love a zoo? St. Louis has an amazing free zoo in Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the US. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon here. Although the zoo is free street parking is sparse and it will cost you $11 to park in either the north or south lots. […]

City Garden, St. Louis, Missouri

City Garden in downtown St. Louis is, quite possibly, one of the best sculpture parks I’ve ever seen. And that’s saying a lot because sculpture is really not “my thing”. But the way this park is set up and laid out you can easily forget that you are viewing sculpture- it’s more like fancy playground […]

Missouri Rest Area a Fun Stop With Kids

Two miles south of the Iowa border along I-35 southbound sits a new rest area. It is rather over-named the Eagleville Welcome Center and Rest Area but it is a really nice rest area- especially if you have kids and the weather is nice. It has all your “regular” rest area amenities: travel information, restroom […]
