Why  St. Louis Is a Great Place to Raise a Young Family

If you are looking to take a short trip with your family, St. Louis, MO is a great place to visit.

Then there's the food, so much good food for your family to enjoy 

Reasons St. Louis is a Good Place to Visit

Here are several reasons why St. Louis is a great place to visit with your family.

1)  Awesome Family-Friendly FREE Attractions

St. Louis is a young frugal family’s dream. There are so many fun and exciting activities to do for free. While most of these places charge for parking, you can easily avoid those charges if you’re willing to take a longer walk.

2) Outstanding Existing Parks and Developing Greenways

One of the things I love most about living in St. Louis is that you can be right in the middle of a large urban area and then drive 20 miles and be out in the great outdoors. However, even within St. Louis city and county, there are many great parks, trails, and greenways.

3) Great Family-Friendly Sports Town

St. Louis is an amazing city if you are into sports despite only having two major sports teams. The St. Louis Cardinals baseball team is one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. Cardinal baseball is firmly ingrained in the culture of St. Louis.

4) The Muny

If theater is more of your interest, you could take the family to America’s oldest and largest outdoor musical theater at the Muny in Forest Park. The Muny is an exceptional place to watch a musical, especially on a nice day.
