This Epic Train Ride In St. Louis Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience
We’re lucky to have so many awesome things to do in St. Louis, but there are some days when you just need to get out and explore! Road trips are awesome, but if you draw the short straw and end up as the driver, you miss out on the scenery. Luckily, there’s an easy fix for that: take a train ride!
There are tons of historic railroads that travel all across the state, but Amtrak’s Missouri River Runner offers an excellent opportunity to take a mini-adventure through some beautiful places along the way!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
