Q: WHAT STOPS SHOULD BE ON EVERY VISITOR’S “BUCKET LIST” WHEN COMING HERE? A: Of course, the Arch.

The museum renovation is fantastic and very interesting to visit. I would also recommend visiting Forest Park. The Art Museum, zoo and History Museum are all contained in the park. And best of all, they are free.

People in Saint Louis are extremely friendly and we love to talk about our city. I am always happy to tell people about the latest restaurant or the best dive bar to visit. You never know unless you ask. Q: SOME GOOD SPOTS TO CAPTURE A GREAT SELFIE? A: Kiener Plaza with the

O

nce home to grand structures, pomp and pageantry, and exhibits from about 45 foreign countries, today, Forest Park may not boast the grandeur of 1904, when it hosted the St. Louis World’s Fair—but it is no less magnificent. The 1,300-acre Forest Park is a wonderland for nature enthusiasts and home to the Missouri History Museum; The Saint Louis Art Museum, which moved into the only permanent exhibition building created for the fair; the stellar Saint Louis Zoo; the Saint Louis Science Center; the enormous outdoor arena, The Muny; and Shakespeare Festival among others. From a woodland park to a grandiose fairground to its current state, Forest Park always seems to know how to draw people and rise to just about any occasion. So whether you’re looking for a family outing, romantic setting, space to relax, workout, culture trip or way to engage the intellect, this park has it covered. When you’re done there, we have five other places for you to enjoy. Our neighborhood spotlight takes you to The Loop—a vibrant, walkable stretch with a lovely choice of cuisines, a clutch of specialty shops, the St. Louis Walk of Fame and great entertainment options. Our calendar is bursting with engagements, from sports and theater to music. Plus, our guide will lead you to the top spots for dining, shopping, attractions and good times. Go on, get your fair share of fun.

BOATING IN FOREST PARK


Discovering Forest Park

MISSOURI HISTORY MUSEUM

OPPOSITE PAGE: ©STLJB/SHUTTERSTOCK.COM; THIS PAGE: SHUTTERSTOCK.COM (2)

At 1,300 acres, St. Louis’ Forest Park eclipses the size of New York’s Central Park, and it’s just as culturally significant. Five of the city’s major institutions make their home here, and the park is a hotbed of physical activity, thanks to hiking and biking paths, tennis courts, golf courses, waterways and playgrounds. David Lancaster Start your park exploration with a stop at the Visitors Center (maps, café, free WiFi, access to the Forest Park Trolley) near the Missouri History Museum on the north side. Speaking of history, in 1904, the World’s Fair occupied Forest Park for seven months. A few of its magnificent structures still remain. You’ll spot them as you enjoy Forest Park’s splendid attractions. The Missouri History Museum, replete with exhibits on St. Louis and regional history, including the World’s Fair, is the perfect place to begin your visit. Kids love the hands-on History Clubhouse, which received an Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History. Be sure to check out the museum shop. The city’s premier cultural institution, the Saint Louis Art Museum, housed in a surviving World’s Fair structure, designed by Cass Gilbert,

commands a sweeping view of the park atop Art Hill. The museum exhibits work from nearly every culture and epoch, with extensive holdings in pre-Columbian, German and early American art. On view through June 9: the first comprehensive survey of the work of British sculptor Rachel Whiteread. The museum maintains an ongoing schedule of lectures, tours, gallery talks, family activities and other events. The museum’s Panorama restaurant offers fine dining with a view. A wildly popular summertime tradition returns to Forest Park when Shakespeare Festival St. Louis presents “Love’s Labors Lost” in Shakespeare Glen, just east of the Saint Louis Art Museum, from May 31 to June 23. Kids are welcome and you’re allowed to bring food to the free performances, which feature a pre-show condensed version for Shakespeare novices. Visitors are often surprised and

delighted to learn that admission to the acclaimed Saint Louis Zoo and other attractions in Forest Park is free. The 90-acre zoo was chosen as the Best Zoo in the nation by USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards in 2018, and rewards visitors with more than 600 species of animals, 16,000 in all, many of them

Top attractions here include the River’s Edge, Grizzly Ridge, Fragile Forest, Children’s Zoo, Stingrays at Caribbean Cove and Sea Lion Sound. Do take a spin on the Zooline Railroad, too. Starting on June 10, The Muny, Forest Park’s grand, 11,500-seat outdoor musical theater, presents its 101st summer season of Broadway hits under the stars, showcasing “Guys and Dolls,” “Kinky Boots,” “1776,” “Cinderella,” “Footloose,” “Paint Your Wagon” and “Matilda.” The last rows of seats are free, first come, first served.
