I’ve not done a scientific study, it’s more a personal observation.
St Louis appears to be allowed only three beautiful-for-outdoors days per spring. This year, I recall one. Instead we went from late winter with frosty mornings directly to summer with an afternoon temp at 90.

Don’t have a friendly waterfall in your backyard?
Hose & sprinkler?
Okay, go modern. I enjoy a nice air-conditioned space as much as the next person.
Or…take a shady hike in a state park. Hat & water bottle are basic– right up there with sturdy shoes for equipment.
Another option– visit state parks via the sweet romance Morning Tryst. Available at major on-line retailers as ebook or print.
