  • This place is amazing. Throughout the year they have occasional light shows at night, which are pretty cool. I went to the lantern festival this year- it was so gorgeous!
  • Pretty cool place but not a place to go in the winter. The Climatron was fascinating & it was basically raining & almost ruined my iPad but I did get this photo. Hard one to get.
  • Whitaker Fest on Wednesdays in the summer is one of my favorite things about living in St. Louis! Other can't miss events - Chinese and Japanese gardens, Garden Glow, Best of MO market
