Saint Louis

— 4 nights

Gateway to the West

Test the local claim that Saint Louis is second only to Washington, D.C.
Get in touch with nature at The Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House and Meramec Caverns. Missouri Civil War Museum and Stone Hill Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Saint Louis: The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park (in Defiance) and Hermann (Sugar Momma's & Deutschheim State Historic Site). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Ulysses S. Grant National Historical Site, get engrossed in the history at Missouri History Museum, admire the striking features of Gateway Arch National Park, and make a trip to Citygarden.
