Be a Tourist. St. Louis Metro Area Excursions

St. Louis is a great place to visit. The city and the surrounding metro area arehome to several attractions. And to celebrate the River City and countdown Piia's departure, I think we should play "Tourists for the Day". One day each month, we'll select a local treasure (or two), and check it/them out. Most venues are family-oriented, unless stated otherwise. Please post a comment if you have any questions or suggestions.
