Last Tuesday I went on a day trip to St. Louis with 2 of my friends. It was my first trip of summer and it ended up being a really fun day!
First we went to this park place near the zoo. I don't really know what it was, but it was so pretty!
Next we ate lunch at The Boathouse. It was on a lake and the view was so pretty! And their fries were delicious.
Then we went to the zoo. I loved the underwater tunnel they had so guests can watch the sea lions swim over!
The meerkats were also a personal favorite.
And they had a butterfly house which meant my love for butterflies could continue.
The zoo closed at 5, but we weren't quite ready to start the drive home yet. So we decided to try to explore near the Arch. Unfortunately there was a lot of construction and we ended up wasting a lot of time trying to find a way to get there. So we ended up skipping that and eating at a nearby place called Joe Bucks.
It is known for it's barbecue, but me and one of my friends ended up splitting chicken tenders and fries since we were not that hungry. Then it was time to head back home!
I highly recommend looking into places where you can take a day trip this summer. It is the perfect way to travel a little without spending a ton of money.
