Gateway Arch Riverboats
Take a load off and take in the views on a relaxing daytime cruise aboard a paddle-wheel riverboat that shows St. Louis from the river that built it. Narrated by the captain or a National Park Service ranger, this one-hour cruise that lets you explore everything that makes the Mississippi so mighty. Everywhere you look, there’s a sight to see and history to discover.
Don’t have time to get out to the backcountry? Try urban hiking, which is just a fancy way of saying hiking in the city. St. Louis is filled with parks and public spaces crisscrossed with miles and miles of paved trails. Walk or roll through cultivated gardens and wild forests or past famous architecture and art on a hike near Downtown St. Louis.
Character Telephone Exhibit
Take a trip to the Character Telephone Exhibit for some family fun. Winnie-the-Pooh, R2-D2, Big Bird and Kermit the Frog – these are some of the telephones you’ll see at the Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum. Housed in a restored 1896 building, the history museum also features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, memorabilia from 1880s through the 2000s and military telephones from WWI through the Gulf War.
Mighty Mississippi Exhibit
Organized by the Missouri History Museum, the Mighty Mississippi Exhibit puts the grandeur of North America’s greatest river in context with the cultures that have grown and thrived around it, from the largest and most influential American Indian centers of the Mississippian cultural period; to the vast European and Indian fur trade networks that forever changed the continent; to the revolutionary steamboats, factories, and immigration of the Industrial Age.
