Adopted City

Quick!  Name three things about St. Louis —

Got them?

How many named the Arch? Beer? Baseball?

Oh, come on — you missed baseball – the most recent World Series Champions? Are you from Texas?

One item I’m guessing you did not mention was fountains. The big city on the other side of Missouri claims the nickname “City of Fountains”. But we have our share in the metro area that holds down the east side of the state. What better way to celebrate the rivers in the area? My goodness – they empty into the Mississippi right and left – Illinois, Missouri, Meremac plus smaller streams and creeks.

Join me as I visit some of the fountains in my adopted city.

We’re starting at the downtown riverfront, looking east to Illinois on a recent Labor Day Weekend.

A sight to cool the tourist.
