An August 2004 trip
to St. Louis by monkeyrob
Quote: St. Louis is an ephemeral experience. Perhaps ephemeral is a way to describe any travel experience, but for me, any trip to this town is defined by the amazing yet fleeting experiences of local food and unique nightlife.

Attraction | "The City Museum: Cabin Inn"
The Cabin Inn is just that, a cabin. Tucked into the side of the activity-filled Museum, the Cabin Inn is a quaint place to get a drink and relax outside. Yes, most of the seating is outside, but don't worry. There are huge fire pits everywhere, so it's easy to keep warm, even in the winter. Drinks are simple and cheap. I usually go for a pint of Schlafly's.
The real fun is the museum that stays open late on the weekends. Explore caves, slides (lots of them), and climbing areas in a mix of indoor and outdoor mazes. It's great for exploring, laughing, and having a good time. When you get tired, have a drink. Then go back for more! You must see it to believe it. No review, picture, or website can do it justice. While in STL, you must go.

Attraction | "Frolf: Disc Golf in Creve Coeur Park"
I went all year when I lived nearby, even in the snow. It's a relaxing walk in the park, and often you have that entire section of the park to yourself. Located right next to the lake, winds often make it an adventure, but unlike some courses, it's very difficult to lose a disc, as the course is wide-open (though there are several trees, its very hard to get a disc stuck). If you have never tried disc golf, this is a great course to learn. There aren't too many obstacles or things/cars to break on bad shots. It's one of the better local city courses I have been to around the country.
