  •  This winter eems to be the gift that keeps giving that nobody wants.

    Cold, snow and ice! Fortunately spring is only about five weeks away and spring break will be here before you know it. 

    Spring break offers us the opportunity to take week-long trips, weekend trips or days trips. 

    Being the travel guru that I am, I suggest heading to the Gateway City for spring break. St. Louis has multitude of attractions and is the prefect entertainment destination for every family.
