Summer Fun Guide

SLSC Lost Egypt

Eat, Drink, Explore, Experience, Enjoy!

Summer in St. Louis has arrived and there is plenty to do in the Gateway City. Here are some of our suggestions for every member of the family. We have something for everyone!

  • Create a memory or keepsake at YuCanDu Art Studio in Webster Groves. YuCanDu offers art camps, workshops, art parties and open studio time for getting in touch with your inner artist.
  • Spend a couple of days at Trout Lodge YMCA of the Ozarks and let the adventure begin! Stay in a lakeside or woodside cabin or enjoy a guestroom in the lodge. Meals are family style and the fun is for everyone.
  • Explore and experience the wonders of The Magic House St. Louis Children’s Museum in Kirkwood. Pack your imagination and enjoy special events, summer camps, art programs and family programs like Fitness Fun Fridays this summer.
  • Learn about the hidden history of pharaohs, mummies and pyramids at the Saint Louis Science Center’s Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science exhibit. Through hands-on challenges, authentic artifacts and guidance from real archaeologists, visitors will unearth the mysteries of Egypt, its culture and its people.
  • Catch a live stage show at the Muny like Nunsense, South Pacific, Les Miserables, Mary Poppins or Westside Story! I understand they have new fans for those hot summer evenings!
  • Stop by Schlafly Bottleworks or the Tap Room for some good food and drink. And check out the Farmers Market Wednesdays 4-7pm and the Summer Garden Event July 25.
  • Enjoy a cool beverage, some great pub food, and watch the Cardinals at one of Llywelyn’s Pub’s five locations metrowide. Remember, Llywelyn’s is Celtic for Good Times!
  • And how about an authentic Italian pastry to satisfy your summer sweet tooth at Piccione Pastry in the U City Loop? This new pastry shop is the talk of the town!
  • Wet your whistle with some tasty Urban Chestnut Brewing Company craft beer. Stop by their brewery in Midtown Alley, enjoy their popular bier garden or pick some UCBC brews at your local grocer!
  • Before the Muny, or just for that special summer picnic, stop in to The Art of Entertaining in Webster Groves for a great take out picnic for two or more this summer!
  • When the weather gets really hot, you should try some Ice Frappes and Chilled Soup from Choice St. Louis where food is delicious and healthy!
  • Take a short trip down I-55 to historic St. Genevieve, Missouri and enjoy the old French town while stopping to shop, eat and explore the many restaurants, gift and antique shops. A great day trip! Or stay overnight in a Bed & Breakfast!
  • At Bixby’s restaurant inside the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park, the new Summer Menu is sure to please your pallette. Enjoy lunch, dinner or Sunday Brunch. And check out the Missouri History Museum, too!
  • If you are looking for a place that will feed you healthy food and help you learn how to live a healthier life, then check out PuraVegan Cafe & Yoga this summer. They have classes in healthy living as well as Vegan fare.
