    Another southeastern place is Johnson Shut-ins.
    It's a place where water runs over lots and lots of big rocks. It's fun to sit on the rocks and have the water flow over and around you like a natural whirlpool. There is a nice camp ground associated with this park.

    The Budweiser brewery tour in St. Louis
    On our way home, we stopped in Saint Louis. We found plenty to do there, and much of it was free! We decided to do the Budweiser tour, where they showed us each stage of making the beer and we got free beer samples at the end. We were very unimpressed, however, with people who brought their young children. As you might expect, much of the tour involves beer drinking propoganda that might not be the best thing for young minds.

    Fishing and hiking in Meramec State Park.
    Incredible rainbow trout, beautiful scenery. Some of the fish were so big, they snapped our lines - they were good eating too! If I remember right, there is also part of the park that is a fish hatchery and the kids can feed the fish. The hiking is beautiful - very rocky, so bring hiking boots.

    The Zoo, if you are into the Zoo you must get a 'Friends of the Zoo' Pass, good at many of the Zoo's around the US. Reciprocal agreement with most of these Zoo's (Except for the Really biggies, San Diego and DC to name a few)

    The Arch

    by Typ88 Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Arch in downtown St. Louis is the gate to the west and a really interesting landmark. And you can even climb to the top of it. Small elevators in egg-shape carry you on a chain to the top of the arch from where you have a nice view over St. Louis and also to East St. Louis, Illinois and the Mississppi river.
    In the bottom of the arch is a museum about the American movement West located. There's alos a cinema that shows movies about that. And you can also buy a lot of souvenirs down there.

  • Silver Dollar City

    by becstar7 Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Silver Dollar City was probably the best thing we did in the Branson area. It is a family theme park that lacked long lines, huge crowds, and tons of commercialism. The tree-filled park offered cool shade as we enjoyed many rides, shows, and scenery. The park also offered a tour through a spectacular cave.

    Picture of my niece and nephew who live and work near there in front of the Fish Hatchery. Visit it to see the biggest trout possible which are used to extract the eggs and breed more trout. Go fishing on the river beside the hatchery or on one of the many lakes in the area.---Play GOLF on one of the many Golf Courses' You may see your favorite 'STAR'--Go boating or hiking or just lay in the sun on a beach on one of the hundreds of lakes. Go to Silver Dollar City for fun and to gamble.
    So many lakes and kinds of fish you have a problem choosing what to do.

    Besides fishing and boating etc. in the evening visit one of the many theaters and see your favorite Artists.
    The whole town is dedicated to shows and artists. In Silver Dollar City not far away there is a huge amusement park, gambling etc.

  • In Springfield, The Civil War...

    by texanb Written Feb 25, 2003

    In Springfield, The Civil War Battlefield is rather interesting. Kansas City & St. Louis have tons of stuff, museums etc.,city-type. Branson is an entitiy of its own - a 'new' Nashville, plus. About 40 miles east of Springfield is an interesting Amish settlement, several 'stores' and an Amish school; also an Amish wagon factory & repair shop. Some find it of interest to visit Carthage - several interesting Federalist homes, plus the 'Precious Moments' collectables chaple, etc. Springfield is also 'home' to Unit 101 of the ACBL - a nice, friendly bridge center. One of our members, Virgil Anderson, was President of acbl several years ago - and the unit can provide a good game for any visitor, 6 days a week. Give us a call!
    This is not interesting to me - but it might be to others.

    The bridge game, however, IS of interest to me! Any ACBL members traveling through Springfield should stop by & play with us!

    The Ozarks are beautiful, with many beautiful, clear lakes (especailly near Springfield and Branson) for fishing and water sports. Branson has 3 outlet Malls for shopping, and several golf courses.

    by Kairbare Written Feb 25, 2003

    Branson, MO. From Waltzing Waters to riding the Ducks Branson was a kick in the pants. Stone Hill Winery was one of the most friendly wineries I've ever had the pleasure of touring.
    Ride the Ducks, they're old army vehicles that go on land and water. The tour I took went out on Table Rock Lake, and I got to see the Dam 'up close and personal.' Take in a show, see the sights. Don't miss Waltzing Waters! A beautiful show mixing classical music with colorful water spray. (it's the low-tech relaxing version of a lazer show.)

    The steamboat Arabia, it sank in Missouri river in the 1850s. Part of the boat and most of the contents were removed from a farm field 45 feet underground. Its now on display in Kansas City.
    Only about 1/2 of the cargo is on display. They add to the display as the cargo is cleaned up. I have some pics I will add soon. I can't say enough about this exibit. It shows life in 1850s USA.

    Visit the Arch of Saint Louis

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Sep 3, 2014

    This is the best activity that you can do in Saint Louis. I enjoyed it like a child!
    Besides, the view of the city from the top of the arch is something really cool.
