Summer fun turns to Fall anticipation

 

A Late Summer Staycation Bids

Summer Farewell, But Welcomes Fall

               By Pat Lindsey

A well-planned St. Louis staycation in late August seems like a great way to say goodbye to summer and welcome fall. The many jewels of Forest Park and other popular attractions around the area are less crowded then because some of the children have already returned to school.
