With our last day in St. Louis quickly approaching, we decided it's time to go over some really cool FREE things to do in St. Louis. We stress the importance of free for two reasons: one, it's always a great feeling to save a buck, even if you can afford not to. Two, we want to emphasize the fact that anyone, ANYONE can travel and do it on the cheap. You don't need to stay in a fancy hotel and do all the touristy things for $30 a pop. But there are so many places to check out in every city, most of which we try to do for $10 or less. So with that said, if you're looking for what to do in St. Louis, Missouri we have you covered. Check it out.

8. Tree House Vegetarian
Let me just tell you--- wow. The fried beets were like French fries but thicker, with a sweeter finish. Less oily which was great. The aoli sauce too, was incredible. Crab cakes, which had zero crab, pan de Queso with a superb chimmichurri sauce on the side. (Although amazing, they still don't beat Luisa Schmidt's pan de Queso!!). The Tree House Wellington was not made of beef, but instead homemade seitan, which was absolutely outstanding. Paired with roasted bok choy and a delectable sauce, we went crazy for this Wellington. And then the non-cheese cheesecake. Probably the best I've ever had. I didn't even realize there was no cheese it was that delicious. Paired with a cherry compote and date/nut crust, I would go back for the cheesecake alone. And the Furlough Fashioned because that was mixed well, too. Tree House was a highlight for me. They stayed open later for us since we also came in a bit late, and showed zero complaints. If you're looking for great vegetarian food in St. Louis, then Tree House is your answer.
