The St Louis Zoo is world class and admission is free (parking is not, visit there before 9am). I'll include this link from "Explore St Louis" - #12 is my favorite! https://explorestlouis.com/25-things-to-do-in-st-louis/ While you're in St Louis, you'll need to try a couple of other treats - Toasted Ravioli and Gooey Butter Cake. Across the Interstate from the Brewery, there's a small shop called Gus' Pretzels (since 1920) - buy a bag of "Pretzel Endz"

If I think up anymore, I'll add them later.

We always stay at Sundermeier in St. Charles. Don't know about transit to sights in St. Louis. Take your bikes and ride the Katy trail just outside the CG.
St. Charles is a neat little town with lots of good eating places.

If you are looking for attractions, you might consider The City Museum. You can spend a couple days in there all by itself. It's been about 5 years since we've been there, and it was an awesome adventure then.


My family really enjoyed it there. I was stuck back at the rig working.

Here’s a quick glimpse of a tiny part of it:

I guess it all depends on how close you want to be to down town St Louis. To be within 10 or less to down town you have Casino Queen and the one we always stay at Cahokia RV Pk in Cahokia IL

When I went a couple months ago, I stayed at Casino Queen. Yes, East St. Louis is a rough area, but the casino area (and RV park) has good security and is reasonably well kept. The transit station is right next to their gate.

There is the St Louis RV Park in the middle of the city, in what is said to be not the best neighborhood. I didn't wander by there specifically, but I would not be against staying there if the need arose. The Casino Queen park is a little nicer, with a few trees and such, and (at least when I was there) also had slightly better rates.

Things to see in St Louis...I would not miss out on the City Museum (the second time I had been there), which is utterly unique. It does involve a good bit of climbing around and some or a lot of crawling to really make it particualrly worthwhile.

The Zoo is excellent. The science and art museums are also said to be pretty good (and also free admission). If you're interested in trains, the National Museum of Transportation is definitely worth stopping at; they have a very large collection of railroad cars and engines, as well as a rather smaller but significant collection of cars and trucks (including some quite rare vehicles, such as a Chrysler turbine car). The Cathedral Basilica is stunning (inside), one of the largest mosaic installations anywhere. You could see about catching a game by the Blues and/or Cardinals, too. I don't know how easy or inexpensive Blues tickets are, but I was pleasantly surprised that I could get a nosebleed seat behind home plate for $30 about 45 minutes before game time, and had a good if slightly distant view.

Maybe I should get your feedback on which attractions are most/least worthwhile? We plan to visit the Gateway arch complex, Grant National Historic Site, Missouri state History Museum & Art Museum, as well as the Missouri Botanical Gardens (Tower Grove House), & of course the Anhaueser brewery for a tour. In view of the reviews so far, HELP!!! Thanks...


The Botanical Gardens in St. Louis is world class. Even if you are not into that type of thing I would budget several hours as a minimum. Maybe the corpse flower will be blooming- that's a rare treat. Also, plan to visit the Hill & have a meal there.

Sundermeier in st Charles. Very nice. Close to old town st Charles. Of course if you want to do downtown St. Louis stuff, you’re about 30 +,- out, but a lot safer. I’d stay away from Illinois. You can do the arch, AB brewery maybe 1 other place in 1 day if you get there about 9-10am. There are other sites, but the drive from st Charles to downtown stl isn’t bad.

We have stayed there two times. only negative is it is right down town and noisy.
