Favorite Midwest Parks for Fall Color
St. Louis: Forest Park
Larger than New York's Central Park and chock-full of activities, this sprawling 1,293 acres attracts locals and visitors. Tour Forest Park by foot, bicycle, boat or even Segway. Free attractions in the park include the Saint Louis Zoo, with lush landscaping perfect for enjoying on a fall day. If you visit during the Great Forest Park Balloon Race in September, rent a pedal boat and watch the balloons drift through a cloudless sky from your floating perch in the Grand Basin.
