Five Unique and Free Things to Do in St. Louis

St. Louis is growing on me more and more for many reasons.  A couple of those reasons are how unique and quirky the city is if you know where to look and also how everything seems to be free! Aside from accommodation and food, you can get away with visiting St Louis without spending money on attractions if you really want to.  Here are five unique and free things to do in St. Louis.

Turtle Playground

FIVE UNIQUE AND FREE THINGS TO DO IN ST LOUIS

Forest Park in general is free and it’s huge!  Tucked away on the other side of the interstate (Forest Park extends on both sides in some areas) is a little patch of the park that is called Turtle Playground.  It’s ridiculously quirky.  It’s great as a a family friendly idea or for people who just really like unique photo ops, like me!

Lemp Mansion

FIVE UNIQUE AND FREE THINGS TO DO IN ST LOUIS

Lemp Mansion is one of the most haunted houses in America.  You can go and check it out for free and take all the pictures you want.  You can also stay here over night (I may try to do this next time!), have lunch, dinner and check out their museum + gift shop as well.  It’s a gorgeous property and you’d never guess it’s supposedly haunted!  Don’t leave without using the restroom, seriously!  Check out my visit here!

Anheuser-Busch Tour

You wouldn’t expect to find me at Anheuser-Busch.  In fact, I don’t like Budweiser or Bud Light at all, but I do love some of their other products.   They have a complimentary tour and it’s well worth it just for the historical buildings.  You’d never guess the inside of these buildings are as beautiful as they are plus you learn some handy information about the brewing process!

Tennessee Williams Gravesite

This one is for my literature fans.  Tennessee Williams is buried in Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis which might also happen to be one of the largest cemeteries I’ve seen.
