The Holidays at St. Louis Union Station

This past summer our family took a road trip to St. Louis, Missouri and explored the historic St. Louis Union Station. We were able to tour the upcoming St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station, the fun restaurants, the gigantic Ferris wheel and more. I am happy to announce that everything is now open or will be officially open in the next upcoming weeks!

The St. Louis Union Station is truly a magical place, but during the holidays they really go all out. If you and your family are looking for a fun and festive long weekend away, plan a trip to celebrate the Holidays at St. Louis Union Station.
