Most of the places I have mentioned most tourist don't get to. There is the Shaw's Botanical Garden. It has a climatron with rainforest inside. It also has a scenic Japanese garden. Outside of St. Louis in Collinsville, IL is Cahokia Mounds, the largest earth mounds in North America. It is also has a woodhenge. If you like Indian stuff or Aztec type architecture, this place is for you. In it's heyday it was larger than London.
The park is located in Sullivan, about 40 miles west on I-44.
College Campuses are hotbeds for protests. I was able to witness one when I was in St Louis. Wander over to the campus and see who is protesting what!
Keep an eye open for art painted on the industrial buildings, down by the water.
IF YOU LIKE MY POST PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS

Downtown St. Louis is wonderful, but be sure to visit downtown Clayton (the county seat of St. Louis County) for an array of great restaurants and shops. Some nice hotels there as well.
Well, not sure about this category, but if you feel like shopping, check out the St. Louis Galleria near I-64 and Brentwood Ave. It's a pretty large mall with tons of shops.
A night at the Muny is a fun way to spend a summer evening in St. Louis's Forest Park. Every summer they have 6 or 7 plays come through.
Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House is in Chesterfield. There is a huge indoor conservatory full of flowers and live butterflies. It is a beautiful place to learn about butterflies.
