This 280-acre wildlife park was once the estate of the Adolphus Busch family, who filled it with wildlife and opened it to the people of St. Louis. However, it’s called Grant’s Farm because this was first the home and farm of President Ulysses S. Grant.
Bison, zebra, elephants, watusis, birds of prey, deer and of course, those fabulous Anheuser-Busch Clydesdale horses now roam the grounds.
There are a petting zoo and carousel for the kiddies, and complimentary Busch beer for the grown-ups.
Take a tram ride, do some shopping, have a personal photo made with the Clydesdales.
It’s a pleasant day to be repeated over and over in St. Louis. Bummer that it’s closed in the winter months.
