Where do I begin? There is always something to do in Forest Park. I could list some of the wonderful attractions. The St. Louis Zoo, ranked #1 in the nation and it's free! If you have kids, buy tickets for the train. The Muny Opera has been hosting outdoor theater for over 100 years, and there are even free seats!... More

Nice park for picnic and golf course right by it. Other than that, not much else to see here unless you like to walk in scenic view.

Yes. Yes, that is correct. Forest Park is the largest metropolitan park in the country....NY is just cooler than StL. Many of the attractions are FREE, great trails, Museums, the Jewel Box....lots of history from the 1904 World's Fair. The Boathouse is a great place to eat in the summer and you can rent a paddle boat and explore. It's... More

What is likely America's largest public park (by acreage) is a magnet to anyone who loves the outdoors. Thousands of varieties of trees, plantings, flowers. Magnificent artistic designs throughout the park show off the horticulture in very fascinating, beautiful ways. Fountains, waterfalls, lagoons, even small bodies of water for various kinds of boating activities. Fun restaurants offer delicious cuisine. Miles... More

This is the cultural and geographic hub of St Louis for a century and a half. Huge expanses of gentle rolling hills with vistas off into the distance, houses the Art Museum (free), History Museum (free), Zoo (free), and so much more, but so spread out each feels like it's own destination (and is) with Forest Park feeling more like...
