    more butterflies than one has ever seen!

    by johnandlynclarke Written Jan 18, 2004

    If you are travelling with kids and you have a car, then the Butterfly House is a must. It is expensive and very small as attractions go BUT it is unique unless you have been to a rainforest.
    Once in the exhibit, it is 90 degrees and very humid. One's glasses fog up immediately, but when the fog clears there are butterflies every where. One will land on your shoulder or your friend's. Everyone ooo's and ahs. Take your time. The exhibit is small. There are benches to sit upon to just stare into the foliage to see the various butterflies. Obviously, this is a very costly exhibit to operate. Butterflies only last a few days so new shipments are brought in every week.
    There is the typical gift shop to entice the kids but it is a good cause.

    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!

    A beautiful restored carousel with hand-carved figures. There's over 60 horses and 2 chariots. During the off times it's a get photo op. There is also a gift shop if you collect carousel items.

    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.

    Downtown Clayton

    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.
