What does a full day look like for you? Probably work, time with the kids, a few meals, errands, meetings, and whatever else life throws your way. I get it! As a stay-at-home-mom, I definitely have days where I feel like I’m just surviving instead of thriving.
Instead of just surviving the day, I’m looking for ways to fill my days with intention – less multitasking, more time for enjoying and living in the moment! That’s why I’m so excited to partner with Phillips 66® to help me Live to the Full with my family.
For me, Living to the Full means spending time as a family without interruption and distraction. Below, I’m sharing some 5 of our very favorite places in St. Louis to go as a family – places where we’ve made tons of memories and truly Lived to the Full and places that I recommend any family visits together.
I am so pumped (pun intended!) to partner with Phillips 66 because they have been fueling communities and journeys long and short for more than 90 years – helping families create memorable moments together.
My absolute 5 favorite family attractions in St. Louis
St. Louis Cardinals games are a FAVORITE summer activity for us! I have so many memories of attending Cardinals games throughout my childhood and now I love bringing my kids along for the fun. If your kids are really young and/or get restless during the game, Busch Stadium has an amazing kids’ area! We might try the Cardinals Kids Club this year – $30 for a ticket and the opportunity for the kids to walk the field before the game!
The Magic House is an amazing indoor children’s museum in Kirkwood – one-of-a-kind! Another place from which I have amazing memories as a child. I LOVE taking my kids to places I visited and loved as a kid – there’s just something so full-circle about it.
The Magic House has tons of little mini exhibits that offer hands-on learning experiences to kids of all ages. Definitely a St. Louis must-see!
Eckert’s is my favorite local farm for apple picking, berry picking, pumpkin picking, and Christmas trees. They have 2 farms that aren’t IN St. Louis but aren’t too far – perfect after you’ve filled up at Phillips 66 ;). Of the Belleville and Millstadt locations, we visit Millstadt several times a year to pick apples, get pumpkins, and cut down our Christmas tree; I love visiting the same place over and over for tradition. Just a great local farm that feels so different than living in St. Louis.
Grant’s Farm is a
St. Louis has THE BEST zoo (seriously, according to USA Today, it’s the best in the US!) and it’s completely FREE to access – voted the best Free Attraction in the US. And I totally believe it! We have a membership for free parking, train tours, and carousel rides, but you can totally just pop in to visit anytime. My kids love the penguin house, Kali the polar bear (seen below) and riding the train. We’ve been to the zoo probably a hundred times and it really never gets old. Definitely a spot in St. Louis that cannot be missed!
