Summer Activities In the St. Charles Area


Summer is here and sometimes we want to peel our kids away from their video games and get them out of the house to be active. Here are 5 things to do in the St.  Charles area, some of which are located in St. Louis.

  1. St. Louis Zoo

I think it’s a pretty safe assumption to say that kids love the zoo. They may not be a huge fan of every animal but in general, kids are intrigued by zoo animals and all that a day at the zoo entails. This is a great summer activity idea and it just might spark their love for animals. Take your little monkeys to the zoo to see the monkeys and you’ll be the worlds best parent to your children. Check out the website for process and additional details.

  1. Contemporary Art Museum

This is a fun and free activity to do for those who love contemporary art. It’s a great place to go for broke college students or those who don’t want to break the bank or spend money. Check out the website to learn about what it has to offer.

  1. Charles Historic District

Breathe in the air of history as you step into the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Missouri River and the embarkation of Lewis and Clark’s journey of exploration along the Missouri. This is an inexpensive trip for those who love history and you can see the first state capital as well as over a hundred historic buildings. You can definitely feel the history there.

  1. Mastermind Escape Room

Everyone should try an escape room at least once in their life. They are so fun and suspenseful. Grab a group of people you work well with and try to break the record for the fastest escape for the day. Check out their website for details. There’s one located in St. Charles and one in St. Louis.

  1. The Family Arena

Check out what’s going on at the Family Arena. Splurge on a dream concert, attend a sporting event, bring your child to a book fair or attend a number of other events they have going on there. There’s always something fun going on at the Family Arena.

Whether you do something that costs money or something that is free, the St. Charles area has plenty of options to get your family out of the house and doing something memorable together.
