    Where To Stay: Magnolia Hotel St. Louis

    It has been a while since our trip to St. Louis, but I couldn’t end the recaps without sharing the details on my new favorite place to sleep, Magnolia Hotel St. Louis. When I search for hotels, I look for several things, a good location and free happy hour is top on the list in most cities, and we lucked out with both, plus much more in St. Louis. To start off the convenience of this amazing hotel, we got off the metro and were less than a block away. We arrived pretty early and I didn’t think we would be able to check-in, which is the case most of the…

    How To Spend 36 Hours In St. Louis

    When we decided to visit a new place every month for this year, we knew we would have to squeeze in some very quick trips in order to make it happen. Thankfully, I really enjoy planning and it’s especially fun to plan our travels. We had been hearing a lot about St. Louis over the last several months, and knew we needed to make the 2 hour flight happen one weekend. When I started planning, I realized that we would only have the time for a one-night getaway to the home of the Gateway Arch. At first I was nervous about seeing everything, but will some good planning, a husband…

    What To Do In St. Louis

    If you can’t tell, we really enjoyed our quick trip to St. Louis. I couldn’t believe how much we were able to do in a short amount of time (less than 48 hours), and we felt so content with our getaway. I will be doing a breakdown of what you should do and the schedule of doing it, in another post, but for now I want to go over the main things you should try to do in St. Louis. All of these things are open almost all of the time, meaning you can visit them at any time of year. Thankfully the Gateway Arch had just reopened from months…

    Things To Do In St Louis: Budweiser Brewery Tour

    As I began planning our trip to St. Louis, there were two “big” things I wanted to do while we were there. Obviously, see the Gateway Arch was number one, but the second was something I didn’t expect to find…a FREE tour  with FREE beer! The Budweiser Brewery Tour was a great experience and I’m so happy we were able to learn so much about the Anhaser Busch company itself. It’s so smart to offer a free tour like this because I now feel a personal connection with this company and their beers….what a marketing team they have! The brewery is a 5 minute drive outside of the city, and you…

  • From Here To There: A Weekend In St Louis

    My grandmother is always saying that she can’t keep up with us, which I take as a compliment. She called me early Saturday morning to talk about something with her iPad, and said “you’re home right?” I said “no Mam, we are in St. Louis”. I could hear her shaking her head and laughing and she said “you two are always somewhere, enjoy yourselves!” I like to think that this is advice we take as literally as possible, so when the chance came to grab some flights and have a weekend in St. Louis, we jumped on it. We were only there overnight, but it was still a great getaway.…
