Pride Journey: St. Louis
The last time I was in St. Louis I was still in my 20s, and I had the energy to party all night. After many shameless social media posts and ten years later, I had the opportunity to revisit The Lou with a friend of mine from Indianapolis. St. Louis is more or less centrally located, so it is easy to travel to from almost anywhere in North America. This makes St. Louis a fantastic destination for a long weekend getaway.
There is a variety and abundance of places to explore in St. Louis. So, immediately after checking into the beautiful Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta Hotel, we walked to the Saint Louis Science Center. This is just one of many attractions located in Forest Park, an area larger than New York’s Central Park. During our visit, the Science Center was displaying a riveting Pompeii exhibition. Guests had the opportunity to relive the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and the rediscovery of the Roman city of Pompeii which contained more than 150 authentic artifacts and engaging interactive exhibits.
