Adventures Await…

Sweet Summertime is in full swing and I’ve got some adventure inspiration worthy of planning your weekend around! Scroll down to see what I mean…

 

Here are some great things happening around the St. Louis region!

 

Playscape Opens in Forest Park    

After two years of construction the much-anticipated Anne O’C. Albrecht Nature Playscape has opened in Forest Park. This 17-acre one-of-a-kind experiential play space features a series of accessible paths and boardwalks that connect nine distinct activity areas including a Sensory Garden, Spring, Meadow, Mounds & Wetland, and more. Click here to explore and plan your visit!

 

Set Course for Coffee

If you’re itching for a caffeine fix, check out Course Coffee, a micro coffee roaster located in the Frenchtown historic district in St. Charles. Inspired by their mutual love of coffee and travel, the three co-owners host seasonal tasting events, educational classes, and daily coffee flights from around the world. Linger in the vintage-inspired and eclectic gathering space or grab a cup to-go for a java-fueled riverside walk by the park. Click here to learn all about their blends and offerings. 

 

Paddleboards, Ziplines, and Rock Climbs, Oh My! 

Pro-Tip: disguise your calisthenics as adventure and have such a good time that you’ll barely realize you’re working out! Summer fitness can be fun, and here’s a list to prove it: paddle boarding, ziplining, and rock climbing! Check out these excellent local options to paddle, zip, and climb!

Get Some Fresh Air…

Drive-In STL Summer Lineup

Live events and music are slowly (and safely) returning to our region and one great open-air venue has announced their summer lineup! Drive-In St. Louis opened last summer in the 12-acre parking lot located at the former St. Louis Mills Outlet mall. This year the Drive-In will host live concerts, movie nights, and music & film pairings through October. New 2021 updates to the venue include a Hospitality Lounge with games and even a Food Truck Alley for hungry show-goers! Click here for all the details, tickets, and show information.

 

Gather Opens in McKinley Heights

Urban Fort Play Cafe has been reimagined, divided, and multiplied. Now open next door (and separated by a sound-proof-wall) is Gather, a new neighborhood cafe which offers a full menu with coffee, pastries, breakfast & lunch items, and more! While Gather has pivoted to an all-inclusive neighborhood cafe, it’s ‘parent’ company (ha! Get it?) Urban Fort, remains focused on families and play and is currently open for private playdates. Click here for more details.

 

Beyond Van Gogh is Coming to STL! 

Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will soon be adding St. Louis to its list of limited engagements. The hour-long experience displays more than 300 of Van Gogh’s works with cutting-edge projection technology and makes the viewer feel like they’re walking around inside of his famous masterpieces of Post-Impressionism. Location and dates have not yet been announced but tickets are expected to sell out quickly, as they have in other cities.

Outdoor Summer Movie Nights

Outdoor Exhibition at the Pulitzer

On view now through October at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation is a new outdoor exhibit by New York born artist, Chloë Bass. The exhibition, entitled Wayfinding, is made up of a collection of more than 30 reflective signs at different scales which are placed throughout the Pulitzer’s outdoor spaces. The works are intended to explore a range of human emotions and the reflective nature of the signage and thought-provoking texts ensure that no two visitors (or even the same visitor twice) will have the same experience. Click here to learn more and plan your trip!

 

Emerson Dinosaurs at the STL Zoo

The St. Louis Zoo is going back in time with its animal offerings and budding paleontologists are sure to be elated. Engaging for all ages, this temporary exhibit, which will run through October, features 16 different groupings of animatronic and stationary dinosaurs who will spit, graze, stare, and roar at prehistoric passersby. Click here to learn about ticket and pricing for this special exhibit!
