Not far from the Ritz, Marriott Union Station or RI Clayton, is a place for everyone to enjoy.  St. Louis hosted the World's Fair at the park in 1904, and the place is still as spectacular as then.  Today it is home to the St. Louis Zoo, Science Center, Art Museum, Jefferson History Museum, Golf Course and more.  Going there on St. Patricks Day, when the weather is 80 degrees, was not a great idea, unless you like a (Green) crowd!  The Zoo is "World Class" and is free to all!St

 

Here are some photo's of "A Day in the Park"!

Looking to the Campus of Washington University, to the left is "The Money Museum".  This was the partial site of the 1904 World's Fair.

A scene out of "The World's Fair", The Art Museum (Was not built till after the World's Fair), but the fountains were there in 1904.  The hill is favorite for families to snow sled down, and is called "Art Hill"!  The last picture is St. Louis and is found atop Art Hill, in front of The Art Museum.

      NU,

       

      Thanks!  We will have to get together in St. Louis, on your next trip!  I read that Shoeman was in town on Saturday for a wedding at the Ritz.  He was close to the park, and shortly after I left, a tremendous storm hit and wiped out all the outdoor activities.  Here is a scene from the St. Patricks Day Parade at the St. Louis Zoo.  Quite a crowd!  The last picture shows one of the entrances to the Zoo, (Where the parade began), with I-64 in the picture as well.
