June 22 - Change Downtown St Louis and the renovated Central Library

Meet at the Peabody Opera House 1400 Market St. Louis, MO

Change -- I could not get a tour for the library set up until June 22.

The walk leave the Peabody at 9:00.  We will walk around to City Garden, Kiener Plaza, and other sites. At 10:00 we will take a tour of the newly renovated Central Library on Olive. (I have to make reservations so time may change.)

Afterwards we will have breakfast.

THE METERS SHOULD NOT REQUIRE MONEY, BUT DOUBLE CHECK.  Make sure all of you valuables are not visible.


What to bring:
- WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT ALL YEAR LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS. WE WILL USUALLY BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 1 ½ HOURS AND THAT IS TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT REPLENISHING THE LIQUIDS THAT YOU WILL BE BURNING WHILE WALKING. – I AVOID DRINKING CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES BEFORE WALKING. THEY THE ARE A LOT OF GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT “effects of caffeine and exercise” ON THE INTERNET OR ASK YOU DOCTOR.
- Dress in layers (not sure what the weather will do). The top couple of layers should be easily unbuttoned or unzipped to allow easy ventilation. Wear a hat.
- I recommend broken in hiking shoes over Tennis shoes. A lot of the trails are over loose gravel and dirt and the treads on the hiking boots work much better.
- Snacks – EAT LIGHTLY BEFORE THE WALK AND BRING A POWER BAR OR SNACK TO MUNCH ON DURING THE WALK.

Meetup Donation: Meetup charges $72 every six months to have the Walking site. If you would like to donate $1 at some of the walks, it will be appreciated.

    I learned things about St. Louis and the main library that I didn't know. The library is a real St. Louis treasure...and the renovation was beautifully done.

    I'm not familiar with the area by the Opera House. Will parking be available on the streets or is there a parking lot/garage nearby?

      Thanks for the head's up Bill about the meters. The city is trying to attract tourists and residents to their many attractions on the weekend. What a wonderful way to encourage people to come to St. Louis.:)
