St Louis Attractions for Seniors

Saint Louis is home to many famous landmarks that draw senior citizens from all across the nation.  The first that comes to mind is the GatewayArch followed by Anheuser-Busch Brewery and Six Flags.  Of course the Cardinals are there as well as the Rams and the Blues.  Not far away is Cahokia Mounds . Many have never heard of this site just fifteen minutes east of St. Louis.  One of the greatest cities of the world, Cahokia was larger than London was in AD 1250.

A neat part of the city is called Laclede’s Landing and here you will find live entertainment indoors and out; hotels, dance clubs, restaurants, pubs and shops in the downtown historic district on the Mississippi River. The Missouri Botanical Gardens are a National Historic Landmark founded in 1859 with 79 acres of scenic landscaping and historic structures. It’s where you will find a memorial tree planted in honor of my brother Steve.  As a botanist, he loved the plant-rich Gardens.
