St. Louis Summer Bucket List: Things to Do This Summer [PHOTOS]

Summer is here, finally, and it seems like we're in for semi-normal season with extraordinary circumstances. While COVID-19 looms in its ever-shadowy state, as long as we mask up and get vaccinated, St. Louis, we should be able to check things off our summer bucket list for the first time in two years.

For those new here, there are some things that we, as St. Louisans, must do every summer. There are some new things we need to try. Luckily, we've gathered these into one place and hope to add as the summer goes along. So, if we've forgotten something, let us know. While you're here, you may want to check out our summer guide, as well.

Happy summer, St. Louis. Let's stay safe, and cool, and have fun.

Take a tour of our beloved brewery.
The tours make us think of two words: free samples. And get all touristy and pose with a Clydesdale while you're at it.
