       WEEKEND GETAWAYS - Friday, March 28, 2008
    Make The Most Of Your Vacation - From Coast to Coast!


Greetings Getaway Lover,

This Weekend We're off to St. Louis....

St. Louis is known as the Gateway to the West. Certainly 
that was true for Lewis and Clark: it was here that they 
stopped for provisions while on their famous expedition. 
And in the years that followed, the city became a 
manufacturing center for wagons, guns, blankets, saddles, 
and everything the pioneer would need on a journey west. 

It's A fun City with lots of things to do and see.


Happy Trails,
Jan

--DESTINATION: St Louis Missouri - Home Of The Arch

St. Louis is indisputably a baseball town. Since the St. 
Louis Browns placed first in the major leagues in 1885, 
and the Cardinals won their first World Series title in 
1926, fanatic love of the sport has been a way of life 
for many. Other sports come and go, but St. Louisans 
remain loyal to baseball.
