Crave the great outdoors? Have an aquatic adventure at the (1) Forest Park Boathouse, where you can rent a paddleboat and pedal your way from the boathouse to the Grand Basin at the foot of Art Hill. If you crave a touch more excitement, you'll get it at (2)
Grafton Zipline, a nine-line, 1.75-mile guided canopy tour through wooded hills and hollows, reaching heights of over 200 feet above the ground, at Aerie’s Resort. One of the great blessings associated with the (3) Katy Trail hiking/biking path, built along an abandoned railroad track, is the proximity of the trail to a number of Missouri wineries, where you can take a break, share a bottle of chilled chardonel, and gaze upon some of the St. Louis area’s loveliest vistas. Rent a bike in St. Charles or Defiance, both right on the trail.
