Grant’s Farm

Afternoon Event
Meet the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales at their official “prep” school. Get going with fun rides throughout the Farm. Whether you paddle, go round and round, or just hang on, you’re sure to have a good time! The Farm takes its name from our 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant who in the 1850’s founded and farmed a portion of the 281 acres. The Farm is home to more than 900 animals representing more than 100 species from six continents.
Today, this land is preserved as a living symbol of the Busch family’s love for animals and Anheuser-Busch’s commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation.

Meramec Caverns

Missouri is also considered the “Cave State.” Missouri has more caves than any other state. Many of the books written about Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn talk about the caves in Hannibal, MO. That is too far of a drive. However, we will take the kids for a day to tour the caves, rivers, and other outdoor beauty Missouri has to offer at Meramec Caverns. There will also be fishing and a river boat ride.

The Youth Room will close Sunday evening at 4:00PM for Family Night at The Saint Louis Zoo!
