    First Time to St. Louis

    Gonna be there 2 days in August. First time being there. Cards are out of town. What should I do?

    I was thinking The Arch and Budweiser. Pretty touristy spots, any way to avoid some of the tourists? Should I make reservations for these things? We will be there on a Monday and Tuesday, so hopefully it won't be too crazy.

    Any other must-do's in St. Louis?

    I'd avoid this. $16 parking with barely any animals. Unless you have little ones I'd avoid it and go to Omaha's for a day.

    Angelo's is good eats and so is Joe Buck's. Angelo's is by the arch between Busch Stadium and Arch. Joe Buck's is harder to get to.

    Not a big fan of Zoo's anyways. Been to Omaha's probably a dozen times in my life, more than enough for me.

    Even with the Cards out of town it is still worth a trip to Busch Stadium........

    Re: First Time to St. Louis

    Kids? Go to City Museum. Not really a museum. More like an interactive hands on LSD trip for little kids --- but in a good way.

    Caverns south and west of town are cool. There are a few of them --- don't remember the names.

    The Arch is a must, one time. And yes, you have to go to the top, or you haven't been to The Arch.

    Most truly memorable nights on the town come with at least a dash of danger added for spice.
