Saturday Tour Around St. Louis!!!

After our plan to surprise Aunt Nett was a success, Melissa and I planned on having a fun day site-seeing around St. Louis Saturday, however the rain we got tried to make us make other arrangements. The rain did finally subside and we were off to visit the Arch, the St. Louis Science Center, & Union Station. Before we started sightseeing we went to a local pub in Laclede's Landing for lunch and then we were off to be screened by security twice and then on our way up to the top of the Arch. Knowing that Melissa is claustrophobic I was surprised that she was able to make it up to the top of the Arch. Once at the top of the Arch I pointed out the several downtown landmarks to Melissa and we hung out for a little bit and then we left the Arch for the Science Center.
We rode the Metro to the Science Center and we had a little bet about where to get off to be the closest to the Science Center since my sister said we should drive to the Science Center. Turns out our idea was better since we didn't have to walk very far (2 - 3 blocks) to get there and the money we would have paid to park would have been more than our subway tickets. Melissa is always fun during a museum/Science Center visit since she is big into interesting things like science and history. We saw several exhibits and did the traditional Science Center thing by purchasing some freeze dried ice cream :-). After leaving the Science Center, we went to Union Station to see the Fudge Makers make fudge and to do a little shopping however we arrived shortly before 6 so shopping was pretty much out of the picture. All in all, it was a great trip to St. Louis, Melissa and I had a great time! I will post pictures from our trip soon.
