Tuesday, September 14 - day 4 in St. Louis

Tuesday was out last day in St. Louis, but our flight didn't leave till mid-afternoon. We had heard about the Lafayette Square area of the city, so we decided to venture outside downtown via a short bus ride to pay it a visit, stopping for coffee drinks form Park Avenue Coffee on our walk to the square. This area was a complete change from downtown, with gorgeous Victorian homes lining the actual square itself. This area is a great place for an ice cream break from Clementine's Creamery, a picnic, or just a relaxing stroll. The park is fairly small, so we crisscrossed through it a couple of times, encountering several water features and a variety of water fowl.

Sometime just before noon, we headed back to the bus stop and got a ride back to the station by the Aquarium. After the short walk back to the hotel, we checked out and got the early afternoon train back to the airport.

We very much enjoyed our visit to St. Louis, with interesting sights and experiences filling our great long-weekend getaway.
