So we visited STL and because I have so many photos plus I want to list what we did, I was going to break down below how our days went. This will be a two part series an I will share more from the next part of our trip on another post. But all in all, we enjoyed each others company, ate good food, played all day, and explored the city some. It's nice that it's just short car ride (approx. 4 hours) away, because we will surely be back to visit there again…
Friday night before dinner we arrived and checked into the HYATT REGENCY AT THE ARCH Located literally on the STL Arch at 315 Chestnut St, St Louis, MO 63102.
We were hungry and got a recommendation for Baileys' Range for dinner. We knew it wasn't to far from so we hiked a few blocks for some burgers, fries, drinks, and a sundae. Yum, yum YUM!!! BAILEYS' RANGE located at 920 Olive St, St Louis, MO 63101.
After dinner we headed back to the hotel to rest up for Saturdays adventure…
CITY MUSEUM?!! If you haven't been there you need to go! It's place is literally a play place and museum for both children and adults (that's right I said adults!). We actually planned our trip there to test it out to see if my kiddos are ready for it yet... Sadly I think we need to wait a few more years (just to be a bit bigger height and weight wise) but that didn't stop us from having a day of fun! City Museum located at 750 N 16th St, St Louis, MO 63103.
It rained while at City Museum which means the outdoor play area closes (for safety reasons) so we ventured out for lunch. We were told by a friend to go to an IMO's Pizza (photo above near Baileys' photo) for STL style pizza, so we had spotted one a few blocks down which we walked too. IMO'S PIZZA located at 1828 Washington Ave, St Louis, MO 63103.
It had stopped raining over lunch so we headed back to City Museum for more fun and to explore the outdoor area. When we finally felt done (after about 5+hours) we drove to the DELMAR LOOP because there was a comic shop I heard we may enjoy and hoped they would have something tasty for dinner also int he area. The Delmar Loop located at 6504 Delmar Blvd, St Louis, MO 63130.
We started walking the Loop, which is like an outdoor strip of shops and of course I kicked into snacky Sandi mode an spotted Ben and Jerry's and just had to stop. Hahaha! An a few doors down was the comic shop so we popped in there next...
The comic shop was called STAR CLIPPERS and totally worth a trip! I bought some stickers, some comics for myself and my kiddos, a Tim Biskup book and the boyfriend found a book he wanted and some trading cards. This store was cool and offered a great range of graphic novels and books thatI was thoroughly impressed. Star Clippers is located at 6392 Delmar Blvd, St Louis, MO 63130.
We ventured into AVALON EXCHANGE a consignment shop, which they had a bunch of cute stuff and priced fairly too. Found an asian vintage romper, I'll share an #ootd photo on another post. Avalon Exchange was located at 6388 Delmar Blvd, St Louis, MO 63130.
The boyfriend popped across the street into THE WIZARD WAGON to look at collectibles and vinyl toys. It was a cool little shop too, located at 6372 Delmar Blvd, University City, MO 63130.
Next up was dinner and we had heard there was a SEOUL TACO on the Loop so we walked to find food. My eyes were much bigger than my stomach, but it was still delicious. Seoul Taco is located at 571 Melville Ave, St Louis, MO 63130.
After stuffing ourselves for dinner we hiked back to the car and headed on our way to Sullivan, Missouri, about an hour drive, for our next adventure in camping, a cave tour and more… Part two coming soon... Hope you enjoyed all the photos! :)
