One place I love to travel to is St. Louis. It is very family and budget friend. They are several things a family can do for free or for a very low cost. Here are some of families favorites:
St. Andrews Cinema. The tickets are $1.00. The hot dogs are $1.00.
Dave and Busters: You can buy a game card for a minimum of $5.00 on a game card to get started and you can just play games.
St. Louis Zoo: free
The Art Museum, the History Museum, and the St. Louis Science Center: free admission
St. Louis Mills
West County Mall
South County Mall
I love the Drury Inn in Chesterfield-it's my favorite hotel there. Free Wi-Fi, Free Breakfast, Free Phone Long Distance Phone Calls, Free Drinks and Popcorn in the evenings. The facility is really nice, too.
