    Hint: park free at the planetarium and you can cross over hwy 40 on the science center inside bridge. Save $9 parking fee:)

    I was surprised too that after 6 years in STL, my kids and I didn’t want to leave. It is a great family-friendly town. So many affordable and free things to do and entertain the kiddoes. We lived in the Lindbergh School District and the whole district is phenomenal. We loved Shakespeare in the Park (free!), the Art Museum (free!), movies on Art Hill (free!), the Science Center (free!). *sigh* I will be following your blog now just to see the haps in the Lou.
