Sundays are all about relaxing and rejuvenating. To fully unwind, you need to break free from the citys hustle and bustle, but youre not the type to just enjoy the great outdoors without a plan. To provide some structure to your Sunday in the country, head out to the Shaw Nature Reserve (at exit 253 off I-44, Gray Summit) for its Harvest Festival. This fall fair features some of the creature comforts of the city -- food from restaurants like An American Place, Rooster and Harvest (natch) -- alongside some of the best the country has to offer, including hayrides, a craft/farmers market and folk music. The autumnal gathering runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission costs $4 to $5. For more information on the Harvest Festival, call 636-451-3512 or visit www.harvestfeststl.com.
