Lao Tzu once said, “A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” While Lao may have actually been referring to matters philosophical, we find the advice is just as applicable to wandering the globe.
When planning your sojourn to St. Louis, you might have a few popular activities already etched into your mental itinerary: visiting the Gateway Arch and the St. Louis Zoo, or visiting the museums in Forest Park. But when you leave room for the unexpected, you can find adventure in unlikely places. Technically a suburb of the city, Maryland Heights offers a delightful detour on any parade of well-known landmarks.
The area is rich in parks and green spaces, which makes it a welcome change from the concrete and steel of the surrounding city. Several Maryland Heights, MO hotels are situated near the beloved Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park, a former 1940s resort. Echoes of public affection sit like a patina over the park’s peaceful oxbow lake as it reflects the gold of a Midwest sunset. Geese and other mallards call to each other across the wetlands, probably making fun of your featherless arms in their secret language.
Leave the laughter of waterfowl behind and take the wheel of one of our rental cars. In Maryland Heights, you’ll find dining and entertainment at Westport Plaza, where luscious after-dinner desserts pair perfectly with a flawlessly executed cocktail. Nearby hotels in Maryland Heights offer the comfort of freshly laundered sheets as you fall into a gentle slumber, dreaming of amber shore grass and wind sighing through the trees.
