We flew down to St. Louis the weekend of March 6, 2010 to visit our friends Shelly & Jeremy! Nikki’s Dad heard about a good flight deal & we were able to both fly round trip for a total of $228 which could not be passed up!! We didn’t have any reason to fly down except to hang out and visit which was awesome. However, we had no problem keeping very busy! We ended up going to Hodak’s, Schlafly Bottleworks (we took the tour!), Forest Park, the Boathouse, the St Louis Zoo and Ted Drewes!
We headed down to St Louis with almost no plan, and it worked out great. Our friends down there were in for the same type of weekend, so it was great just to be able to hang out with them. We ended up being able to hit the great St Louis Zoo, walk around one of the main city parks, and just enjoy the good weather. It was perfect to be able to get away for a few days, and I think that Nikki and I were really thankful for the weather, and being able to spend some good times with friends.
With the cheap flights to St Louis right now, I would definitely recommend it as a weekend get away.
Best Part: The weather couldn’t have been better. Definitely being able to sit by the side of a lake at the park to have lunch was great. It’s amazing how much better the weather can be just an hour flight away.
Worst Part: Sitting on the tarmac for almost an hour on both flights… but hey, can’t control everything.
We always have a great time hanging out with Shelly & Jeremy. I’m lucky because Chris and Jeremy hit it off right away which makes it awesome for the 4 of us to hang out! This weekend was different because we didn’t have any set plans and it was nice to have a more relaxed pace. The weather was beautiful, the flight was only an hour (compared to a 9 hr drive!) and the company was fantastic!
Best Part: Lunch outside & walking around at the park and zoo…the temps got up to the 60’s!!
Worst Part: Getting up at 5:45am on Tuesday to fly home. Although, I booked the flights so I guess it’s my fault!
