Fall in St. Louis


Daniel Cho, Sports Section Editor

It’s that time of the year again. The trees turn into a vibrant mixture of orange, yellow and red colors, the blistering heat of the summer is replaced with the cool fall temperatures and the t-shirts and flip flops are tucked away in the closet.

We are now in the early stages of the 2016 fall season and you have a couple of months to experience the best that St. Louis has to offer.

#1 The Pageant. Ranked one of the top five concert venues in the world by Pollstar, the Pageant is the perfect getaway to experience live music at its finest. Located in the Delmar Loop, this venue will be hosting a variety of artists and groups that will please the palate of all music enthusiasts. Hit artists such as Rae Sremmurd, Mac Miller, Troye Sivan, and Lil Uzi Vert will being having performances at the Pageant during the fall season, so make sure to go out and grab your tickets!

#2 Busch Stadium. The fall time is perfect for a viewing of our 11-time World Series Champions the St. Louis Cardinals. With cooler temperatures, you no longer have to worry about a day full of sweat and exhaustion. But if you’re not particularly keen for baseball, you can spend your time in Ballpark Village, an area right near Busch Stadium filled with markets, restaurants, concert stages, and tons of TVs, you are sure to become immersed into the pleasant atmosphere.

#3 The Botanical Garden. The fall time offers arguably the most pristine conditions for going to St. Louis’ very own Botanical Garden. Year round it features flower shows, live music and special events. The 79 acres that it occupies offer something for everyone and a diversity of displays ranging from Chinese gardens to Victorian Districts.

#4  City Museum. The name is a bit misleading. However, what you get at this “museum” is part playground, part junkyard and a thrilling playground for all ages. It used to be an International Shoe company, but now this 600,000 square-foot building has been remodeled to feature ten-story slides, rooftop ferris wheel, ball pits, and hundreds of feets of tunnels. For all of you that are kids at heart, or want a day of excitement, the City Museum is the place to go.

The fall is the perfect opportunity to get out and find new things. And now you can’t make any excuses about the weather. Go watch a live concert, eat great food, and explore.
