Since we flew in and out of St. Louis, we were able to spend two-days in St. Louis on our way out from the Ozarks, and a quick brunch on our way out to the lake. Needless to say our 2-days in St. Louis were jam packed with prime tourist spots and a few off the path places. We wish we would’ve had more time to explore, but definitely got a taste of St. Louis.
Half & Half Brunch
I had been researching some good food spots, luckily we were able to at least attend one spot. It was the perfect pit stop to refuel after an early morning of travel and before the drive to the lake. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy, the service was friendly and on point, the food was amazing and wish we could’ve gone back for more!
We popped over the the Gateway arch to start one of our days. The last time I was in St. Louis, I was too young to remember, old photographs are all I have as a memory, so it was great to go back and appreciate the beauty. Not to mention this was B’s first trip to the city. We were late to the game booking a tour to go up inside the arch, but we were able to snap enough photos around the manicured greens. This is definitely a must in STL.
Anheuser Busch Brewery
Of course we made a stop to the iconic “all-American” brewery. This little village located on the perimeter of downtown, was an impressive site to see with many of the buildings built in the 1800’s, that by the way are in pristine condition. The complimentary tour was the perfect combination of tradition and taste, while we began and ended our visit in the bier garden! A highlight of our stop here was touring the Clydesdale barn built in 1885, and then snapping a photo with one too!
We had a great trip at the lake, ending it with fun activities in St. Louis. We definitely want to get back to visit a few new spots and enjoy a few again!
