In addition to the various museums worth exploring in St. Louis, Granite City residents should consider the following things to do in St. Louis in the winter.

  • Cheer on the St. Louis Blues: Winter is the ideal time to head to Scotiabank Arena and watch the St. Louis Blues crush one of their many opponents.
  • Spot Bald Eagles: Missouri is known for its eagle watching during the winter months, since bald eagles tend to build nests along the Mississippi River from late December through early February. If you go early in the morning, you may catch the eagles flying and fishing!
  • Celebrate Mardi Gras: The Mardi Gras season is heavily celebrated in the St. Louis area, so make sure to participate, especially with the Saturday Grand Parade, a signature St. Louis experience.
