by Family Attractions Card in Family Fun, Halloween, Hiking, Live Like a Local, Local Eats, Parks category

If you’re a St. Louis local, you probably don’t need us to convince you about how Fall is this city is simply sensational. We’ll take chilled mornings and warm, sunny afternoons over mosquitoes and intense summer humidity any day!

Autumn is particularly pleasing when it comes to picking pumpkins and munching on sweet Halloween treats at our favorite spots in the Lou.

The crisp colors of Fall, coming soon to the trees near you, pair perfectly with a pumpkin spiced something-or-other and your little ones in tow.

Find your family’s favorite new Fall tradition!
