Approx. 15-20 minute drive from that Hampton area to the Zoo - ~7 miles... interested in driving, walking, taxi, or metrolink?

How small is small? Add 'em together do you get much more out of 'em?

Dinner - price range, type/style of vittles, and what defines "good" - good Red Lobster, good Cracker Barrel, good Ruth's Chris, or good local place? Seafood restaurant - Bristol and the Sidney Street Cafe have high marks, for example... but seriously, depends on budget and tastes.

Riding in the arch is scary, but I think it's a good experience.
There are plenty of good restaurants in St. Louis area. Depends on what cuisine you like.
For Italian, go to the Hill. St. Louis Fine Restaurant Guide - The Hill

Enjoy your stay.

I do not think of riding in the ARCH as scary When I was young, at was taken back a bit at first when the tram 'aligned' itself for the ascent, but it was fine after the first occurance. I do not like to go up in the tram with strangers .. especially those with bad hygeine. Small compartments for extended periods of time, I am sure you can smell where I am coming from

I rode the arch with a local girl in 1990. Two others were in the Arch car with us and said they were from N Dakota. My girl gave a knowing smile and was clearly biting her tongue. At the top I asked her what was the joke.
She said she wanted to ask, with half the ND population in the Arch, where were the other two ?
No we did not get married.....I went one step worse, I married a girl from Iowa. Idiots Out Wandering Around.
Thats a Missouri joke.
