Number 77: Take a trolley tour of St. Louis

trolly_new

I love St. Louis and I love to learn more about the city and just be a tourist in my own city. When I came across the Living Social deal for a trolley tour for 2 I knew I was going to buy it. I would worry about who would go with me later.

My lucky guest on the tour was my mom

We boarded the trolley at Lumiere Casino on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The tour took us to the following locations

  • Laclede’s Landing (Historic/Entertainment District)
  • The Mighty Mississippi River
  • The St. Louis Arch
  • The Old Cathedral
  • The Old Courthouse
  • Busch Stadium
  • Millionaire’s Row
  • St. Louis Union Station
  • Forest Park (Zoo, Science Center, Museums, etc)
  • Washington and St. Louis Universities
  • The U-City Loop (Blueberry Hill/St. Louis walk of fame)
  • The Cathedral Basilica
  • Downtown St. Louis
  • The Edward Jones Dome

Our wonderful driver (who lives in Dogtown!) gave history and fun facts about each location and pointed out all the free attractions in St. Louis.  For the most part we were the only local people on the tour. There were people from New York, Florida and even  a couple from Cyprus!

This was a fun outing throughout our wonderful city. I recommend it for St. Louis natives and those just visiting.

 

hmmm where will you find me next……………………….
