Forest Park

<p>More than twice the size of New York's Central Park, the 1,200-plus acre Forest Park is a city gem. The park is home to the St. Louis Art Museum, the Zoo, and the Science Center, so you can spend the day exploring artworks and animals from all over the world and discover hands-on science. Picnic in the World's Fair Pavilion, take the kids to the playground, or go for a bike or Segway tour through the park. With tons of events, like the summer concert series and the wine festival, there's always something going on in Forest Park. Plus there are so many other parks to explore as well, that no matter how amazing your perfect apartment is, heading out and exploring the city is absolutely worthwhile! Of course, one of the best places to check for area festivities is the local St. Louis Today.</p>

Historic Mounds

<p>Still sometimes referred to as "Mound City," Saint Louis was once marked with numerous mounds. Relics of the Native Americans that settled the land, the mounds have largely been excavated and built over. East of the city though, you can explore the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, tour the mounds, and learn about the cultures of the ancient Midwest. Its 3.5 square miles of park makes Cahokia one of the largest archaeological sites in North America, and a fantastic resource on the Pre-Columbian culture</p>

Science in Saint Louis

<p>When you've got the Saint Louis Zoo, Grant's Farm, and the Saint Louis Science Center in your backyard, and it's easy to see why so many people are moving to Saint Louis! In addition to the bears, butterflies, elephants, and antelopes that you'll find at the Saint Louis Zoo, you can get excited about their "Jungle Boogie Friday Night Concert Series" too. Grant's Farm offers up a chance to visit a Deer Park, the Clydesdale Stables, and even see some camels and pygmy goats. But for some serious indoor adventures, don't pass on a chance to visit the Saint Louis Science Center and catch a planetarium or OMNIMAX Theatre show. If you've got little ones coming along, be sure to check out their Paleo Preschool program as well.</p>
