There are plenty of places for the whole family in St. Louis.

If you are considering moving out toward the center of the country, then you may want to consider a sizable number of cities that could be suitable for your and your family. One place that may be a great area to bring your moving boxes is St. Louis. The city has plenty of history, and it is also filled with activities that can keep your family busy. When you make your decision, contact your moving company to set up a relocation date.

Forest Park
One of the best areas to experience a relaxing, outdoor atmosphere in the city is Forest Park. According to ExploreStLouis.com, this was the former home of the World's Fair. Since then, it has transformed into an area that is great for enjoying the scenery. There are many amenities on the site, including the World's Fair Pavilion, where you can have a picnic. Another major attraction is the Jewel Box. This is a sizable greenhouse that has a number of different plants, and is known for its floral offering.

St. Louis Zoo
It is likely that your children are fans of animals, especially ones they can see up close. There is a place in St. Louis that can give you all the animals you can handle, and according to National Geographic, it may be one of the top spots in the country. The St. Louis Zoo is also great for families, as there is no cost to enter. If you arrive early in the morning, it is possible to avoid parking fees, which can give you a day to explore the zoo with no worries about spending a bunch of cash.

Six Flags St. Louis
Another place that could work as a great family destination is just west of the city. Head out to Eureka, and you will come across Six Flags St. Louis. According to ExploreStLouis.com, this is the home of multiple fun roller coasters and rides including the Screaming Eagle and Batman the Ride. But roller coasters aren't the only reason to check this spot out. There is also a water park on-site, and many concerts are played at the venue. Whether you want to just take a day trip out to the city, or plan to hang out for the weekend, either is possible here.

St. Louis Union Station
If you want to visit a place that has both history and shopping fun, then checking out St. Louis Union Station may be a good idea. This venue was a notable rail station, but has since been converted into a shopping center, according to National Geographic. Now, you can get a tour of the area and learn about its past, or just go shopping. There are more than 80 stores and restaurants at this location, so you may be able to spend quite a lot of time here to get through everything.

St. Louis Science Center
A place where people of all ages can enjoy what it has to offer is the St. Louis Science Center. According to ExploreStLouis.com, there are plenty of things to enjoy including the Discovery Room. This is a venue where children can explore a number of exhibits. It also is the home of a full-size anamatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex, which may be enough to get the kids to jump in the car to head to the facility. There is also a planetarium, as well as the Omnimax Theater. Whatever you choose to do (unless you choose all of it) this could be a fun time.
