A Must Visit Family Destination – What To Do On Your St. Louis Trip
There are lots of great cities within a short drive from Champaign-Urbana, and we love many of them for different reasons. Taking a break from our quaint, college town nestled among the cornfields, we love the hustle and bustle that comes with visiting a city and the experiences (and FOOD) we can enjoy together as a family while soaking in the sights. And over and over again, as our kids grow, we continue to find things to love about visiting St. Louis and have NEVER run out of or tired of things to do while in the city.
Things to Know
St. Louis is nestled along the banks of the Mississippi River and is a city of just over 300,000 people as of the 2018 census. The county as a whole comes in with just under 1 million people, so while definitely a big city, it feels smaller (and at times, much easier to navigate) than Chicago does. The trip to St. Louis takes just under or about three hours from Champaign-Urbana.
