    Chip's Chocolate Factory

    by ArenJo Written Feb 27, 2014

    This is inside the Crown Center. The chocolate gem stones near the counter look real and taste SOOOO good. The prices here were really reasonable too. And of course shopping for chocolate is enjoyable.
    My son dropped some on the floor and they were real nice about it, sweeping it up and joking around with him.

    Crown Center in Kansas City

    by ArenJo Written Feb 27, 2014

    Lots of photo opportunities in here. Lots of things for kids to do and see here. We especially loved the trains at Fritz's (though the food was horrible) and we loved the food at the Crayola Café.
    It is beautiful at night. The trees are all lit up and people are ice skating outside. Weekend parking is free. You can get 3 hours free parking on other days if you buy something and take the receipt out with you.

    Silver Dollar City in Branson

    by ArenJo Updated Jan 19, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They have added so much for kids since I would visit as a kid. It has changed so much that I kept getting lost. It is expensive, but I think it is worth it. And if you watch their website, they do at times have special deals.

    Three Sisters Old Time Photos

    by ArenJo Written Jan 19, 2014

    They were great at matching me and my son's outfits and getting us both in the right mode for good pictures. They also offer good deals and we loved the pictures so much that we bought their biggest package. We had a lot of fun here and my son walked in with a grouchy mood, then walked out smiling.

    Rockaway Beach 4th of July Celebration

    by ArenJo Written Jan 19, 2014

    The fireworks are fabulous. And the kids enjoy the inflatables during the day time.
    Also, if you decide to stay in town, it is close to Branson yet much cheaper. There are many different cabins available.

    Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery in Branson

    by ArenJo Written Jan 19, 2014

    Great low key place to go without spending a lot of money and the kids love it. Some of the fish inside are huge. And it is great fun feeding the ones outside (which is the only reason you would spend money). They all swarm to the food like they haven't been fed in days.
    FYI, bring quarters in for the fish food. And you can ask for a cup inside so you don't have to hold it all in your hands.

    Ride the Ducks

    by ArenJo Written Jan 19, 2014

    I'm 28 years old, I went with my 4 year old son and my 70 year old father. We all enjoyed it. All the kids (and myself) drove the duck while it was in the water. Some nice scenery as well. Just a little expensive.

    Historical St. Joseph

    by DueSer Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St. Joseph, Missouri, located on the banks of the Missouri River, has a plethora of historical sites to see, making it a perfect destination on a family summer road trip or even if you're headed somewhere else, it's a great place if you would like to stop somewhere interesting for the evening.
    Besides the Jesse James & Pony Express Museums (see my other tips), there are also, all within the same general area, two statues and a great neighborhood of old, beautifully restored homes.

    Glore Museum

    by tinkerbell22742 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    It was actually 1,446 items that the patient swallowed. They died during surgery. Why would the doctors save these items in the first place? Maybe they could foresee that one day there would be a museum to put them in.

    The St. Louis Arch

    by Ky_Happy_Dad Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Arch in St. Louis is as symbolic of the city as the Eifel tower is of Paris, the statute of Liberty of New York, or the Space Needle of Seatle.

    The Arch is part of an urban National park, the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park, signifying the the City's role in U.S. history after the Louisina purchase and being the gateway to the west.

    The arch is an archictural gem, and as the sun reflects of its graceful curves, it is enjoyable to photograph, or to take the tram to the top of the arch and view the city and the Mississipi river. Besides the arch, you can view a movie of the Louis and Clark expedition, and see the old St. Louis courthouse.

  • See the Pyramids! (not kidding)

    by fellman01 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are travelling through St. Louis than you must visit the Indian Pyramids located 30 minutes away in Cahokia, Illinois. These earthen structures and ceremonial vistas are very impressive and the Monk's Mound is one of the largest of its kind in the world. This is a cultural heritage site that must not be missed.
