9 Epic Outdoorsy Things In St. Louis Anyone Can Do

There is no shortage of things to do outside in St. Louis. We have a world class zoo, one of the largest parks in the country, and Six Flags (in season). This list includes more traditional outdoorsy activities that people in other parts of the country couldn’t do without traveling and much planning. Here in St. Louis you can do some of these activities right in your own backyard.

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!
