Course detail: OS18301F - The Sites of St. Louis-From A (the Arch) to Z (the Zoo)!
We've planned a full-throttle, three-day visit to St. Louis that includes all the sites-the Arch, Anheuser Busch Brewery, the Art Museum, a Cardinals game, dinner on the Hill, Laclede's Landing, Missouri Botanical Gardens and of course, the St. Louis Zoo!Departing from the Osher Institute, we'll pick up travelers at the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park, arriving in St. Louis for lunch at Sassafras overlooking the Missouri Botanical Gardens. After lunch, we'll board the tram for a docent-guided tour through the 79-acre park, including its famous 14-acre Japanese garden. Afterwards, we'll check into the Pear Tree Inn by Drury near historic Union Station. On Wednesday evening you have a choice: either catch the interleague game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cleveland Indians or have dinner on your own in downtown St. Louis. Thursday morning we're off to the world-famous St. Louis Zoo. You can board the Zooline Railroad, hopping on and off to visit all the sites along the way. From the Zoo we'll head to the nearby St. Louis Art Museum where we'll enjoy lunch in the Panorama Restaurant high above Forest Park followed by a docent's tour of the Museum's collection with time to explore on your own or visit the Museum Shop.Thursday afternoon we'll visit the Anheuser Busch Brewery. From its historic architecture to it latest brewing technology to the stately Clydesdales, we'll get a true taste of Budweiser's heritage, include the King of Beers. No visit to St. Louis is complete without dinner on The Hill. We'll dine at Favazza's, a family owned restaurant in "Little Italy." Brothers John and Tony Favazza promise an unforgettable experience in the building once patronized by Frank Sinatra and the "Rat Pack," and where Yogi Berra worked as a waiter and coined the phrase, "No one goes there anymore; it's too crowded."On Friday morning, we'll visit the Gateway Arch National Park where you can visit the Old Courthouse, site of the 1847 Dred Scott trial, the Basilica of St. Louis, fondly known as the Old Cathedral, or you can ride the tram to the top of the 630-foot Gateway Arch.
