St. Louis, Missouri Day 3

Today we went to The National Transportation Museum. Much of the museum was all old trains and cars. I am not a car guy necessarily, but their car selection was not big. But to be fair they operate on donations and volunteer help. So there is only so much they can do but…. it was nice to see some of the cars in person. Many of them were early 20th century cars/trucks. You could tour many of the train cars and take a trolly ride. They also a discover center for kids. This area was like day care but our daughter had fun. That’s all that mattered.

For lunch we went to Red Robin. It’s a good burger chain. I would recommend it if you have one in your city or visiting a city with one. But some people prefer more local places that aren’t chains.

After lunch we went to the St. Louis Arch. If you do not like tight spaces or heights this is not the place for you. My wife and mother in law stayed at the bottom as neither of them cared for heights. My daughter had a good time. The heights did not seem to bother her but the waiting did.

For dinner we ate at the The Shaved Duck. The food was ok. It was also a small venue. Maybe my expectations were too high being from Kansas City. They had live music which was nice.

All the photos were taken while driving.  Well I wasn’t driving but the car was moving.
