Missouri Botanical Garden

Another must for inclusion in your St. Louis staycation plans is a trip to the Missouri Botanical Garden.

Some of the permanent highlights include the Climatron Geodesic Dome Conservatory, Seiwa-en Japanese Garden, Victorian District & Tower Grove House, Doris I. Schnuck Children’s Garden, and Linnean House. There are also tram tours and plenty of activities for kids of all ages.
