For the past two years I have listened to one of my best friends go on and on about how absolutely amazing St. Louis is. As a proud Tulsa native, I have consistently argued that my town, despite its smaller size, is much better. To settle our ongoing debate, we decided to spend our Spring Break in St. Louis so I could experience her hometown in person.
As soon as classes ended on Friday, three of my good friends and I packed up a car and kicked off our Spring Break adventure. We carefully planned out our trip to make sure that we saw the best St. Louis has to offer.
The six days we spent in St. Louis were jam packed with trips to all of the major attractions.
We also stopped by a lot of really interesting historical sites and museums, including the Old Courthouse where the Dred Scott decision was made. Finally, we couldn’t end our trip in St. Louis without going into the Arch. Although the ride up to the top of the arch was terrifying, the view at the end made it all worth it.
Although there was plenty to see in the city, we also spent a good amount of time at my friend’s house watching movies and cheering on our basketball team.
TU has a very large population of students from St. Louis, and they are very expressive about how much they love their city. It was nice to get the chance to see where they are from and experience it with my best friends.
Although the trip to St. Louis was a fun change of scenery, I am very happy to be back home in Tulsa to finish out the semester. Let the countdown to summer begin!
