Forest Park

Covering 1,326 acres Forest Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country. Not only is it a modern-day attraction with 12 million visitors a year but it also has a rich history! Forest Park has hosted many events including the Louisiana Purchase and the 1904 Summer Olympics. The park is known as the “Heart of St. Louis” and we can understand why! It is home to the St. Louis Zoo, the St. Louis Art Museum, the Missouri History Museum, and the St. Louis Science Center. Other points of interest include the Jewel Box, a beautiful greenhouse filled with magnificent floral displays, many golf courses, bike and walking trails, ponds, and the World’s Fair Pavilion.

Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site

This early Native American city can be visited across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. The historic park covers 3.5 miles and contains about 80 mounds.  Around 1100 CE Cahokia had a population between 14,000 and 18,000, spanned more than 6 miles, and included more than 120 mounds! Cahokia was the largest urban settlement of the Mississippian culture. Today, the Cahokia Mounds are considered to be the largest archaeological site north of the cities in Mexico. If you love ancient history this is a must-see!
