St. Louis Rental Cars
St. Louis is a Midwestern gem with plenty of learning opportunities cleverly concealed in several days-worth of fun activities. See everything the metropolitan area has to offer, from zoo animals to hands-on art. An added bonus: A lot of places in the city are free. This vacation won't break the bank, but it'll have your family talking about it for years to come.
The city has no shortage of animal attractions. First, head to the St. Louis Zoo and see a variety of animals, including elephants, cheetahs, penguins and apes. Children can take part in hands-on opportunities at Discover Corner, where they can pet bunnies and goats, or dip in a pool surrounded by otters! No need to pack a lunch - there's several dining options at the zoo, and a Zooline Railroad ride is waiting for the kids after they finish their food! If your family still wants to see more animals, drive your St. Louis rental car to one of the city's several farms. St. Louis is also home to the World Aquarium and Lone Elk Park, which offer even more interactive exhibits and learning opportunities.
Do your kids tell you they don't like studying art? Luckily, the Laumeier Sculpture Park masks itself well! This open-air museum has more than 80 works and encompasses 105 acres. It's free, and open daily from 8 a.m. to sunset. Check its website for holiday hours. For children who have already taken a liking to art, head to the Saint Louis Art Museum. This building was constructed for the 1904 World's Fair and has collections of art from all cultures and time periods. Admission to the museum is always free, and if you'll be in the city on a Friday, you can head over in your St. Louis car rental to can take advantage of free admission to exhibitions and programs.
This 600,000 square-foot building was the former International Shoe Company, and now is a combination of a funhouse, playground and architectural exhibits. Many of the hands-on activities are made out of repurposed building materials from the city, incorporating St. Louis's history in yet another way. Don't let yourself miss the spiral slide, which descends from the roof. Popular St Louis car rental locations for your rental car needs:
