Book Your Limo for these Amazing Events
St. Louis’ favorite time of year is finally here.
The spring and summer season is always a magical time in the Gateway City.
The icy cold weather is finally gone and the humidity hasn’t quite settled in yet, making it the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy the sunny skies and budding trees.
Along with the gorgeous weather in the St. Louis area every spring comes some of the cities favorite events, fairs, and festivals.
Keep your eyes open for events in the area that might peak your interest.
Shakespeare Festival on Art Hill
The great thing about living in St. Louis is that so many activities in the city are completely free. From the zoo to the Science Center, many of the city’s family attractions are available to you free of charge.
One annual free festival that gains in popularity by leaps and bounds every year is the Shakespeare Festival on Art Hill. For over a decade now, there has been free Shakespeare in the park for you to enjoy with your family.
Just bring a blanket or chairs and some snacks, and you can enjoy the works of the bard completely free of charge while also enjoying a gorgeous night out in the park. This year the festival is putting on a double featuring, showing both Henry IV and Henry V on alternating nights.
Speaking of the theatre, a spring and summer in St. Louis would just not be complete without The Muny.
The largest outdoor theatre in the country is located right in your back yard. Every summer some of Broadway’s finest flock to St. Louis to bring excellent Broadway shows to the city.
This year, the Muny is kicking off its season on June 16 with Billy Elliott The Musical. You can find ticket information online. However, if you get there early enough, you might be able to get one of the free seats in the back. Just remember to bring your binoculars.
Another annual favorite is also rolling into Wentzville this May.
It may be a bit of a drive from the city, but it’s definitely worth the trip. The St. Louis Renaissance Faire is celebrating its 16th anniversary in St. Louis. Artists, craftsmen, and artisans from all over the country come to the faire to sell their products. You can also learn about Renaissance history and enjoy entertainment varying from juggling to jousting.
Spring is also a wonderful time to pay a visit to a visit to some of St. Louis’ other favorite establishments. The weather makes this season a perfect time to head over to the City Museum downtown. Adults and children alike will love climbing the gigantic three-story jungle gym outside and riding the rooftop Ferris wheel.
You should also consider taking a trip out to Six Flags St. Louis before the weather gets too hot.
And definitely don’t forget about Busch Stadium. Now is that time of year to slip on your red shirts and start routing on the Cardinals.
The city of St. Louis is celebrating it’s 250th birthday this year, and to celebrate there are 250 birthday cakes scattered all over the city. One fun event you and your family might do this spring is taking a drive around to the city’s favorite official and unofficial landmarks to get a picture with as many of the artistic cakes as you can.
If you are looking for transportation in and out of the city for any of these events or more, you should consider renting a limo service. If you are worried about parking, or just unfamiliar with getting around town, having a professional driver escort you is a fantastic way to take the pressure off and just enjoy yourself.
