Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo

To Vaca or Not That is the Question  (Part 3 of 5).........

If you haven't figured it out yet St. Charles County, MO and St. Louis City/County, MO offers more than just the St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Blues.  There are loads of parks, walking trails, bike trails, casinos and history too.  And there are other things to do too.  I have written about, Bed & Breakfast, which offer an alternative to the more traditional hotel/motel.  Then I wrote about visiting Missouri wineries that are close to home.  I haven't written about fun things to do with children while on a stay-ca here in the greater St. Louis and St. Charles Missouri area.

If you are new to the area or maybe you are a home body like me and just don't get out, you may not know of places around the Greater St. Charles, MO area.  There is a wealth of things to do right here, as we found out over the last couple of weeks, and they won't cost a boatload of money either!  In this series I hope to show what one could do within a short drive from home.  Not only for the adults but also things the kids will be able to do and enjoy.

So this week I want to take a look at Fun Things To Do With Kids throughout the state. 

Here is a very short list of fun and inexpensive things to do with kids, some of which I frequent and enjoy:

St. Louis Zoo

Saint Louis Zoo
One Government Drive
St. Louis, MO 63110

Grants Farm

10501 Gravois Rd.

St. Louis, MO 63123

314-843-1700 

Childrens Garden

In the Missouri Botanical Gardens

4344 Shaw Blvd.

St. Louis, MO 63110

314-577-5100

Powder Valley Nature Center

11715 Cragwold Rd.
Kirkwood, MO 63122

314-301-1500

Fountain at Tower Grove Park

4256 Magnolia Ave.

St. Louis, MO 63110

314-771-2679

Magic House

516 S. Kirkwood Rd.

St. Louis, MO 63122

314-822-8900

There are many more things to do in our family friendly area of St. Louis and St. Charles County Missouri.  Just think, you could stay at a Bed & Breakfast and visit a winery close by one day.  And the next day after a great night's sleep you could take a day with the kids and visit some of the sites above.

Here's to another great time close to home....Kids, animals, magic and nature all make for a great combination and fun time!!!
