I think this sounds like the perfect thing to do on a weekend getaway from the Tri-States! Head to St. Louis and check out Winterfest, plus you have the Zoo Lights at the St. Louis Zoo and of course the Brewery Lights at the Budweiser Brewery as well, you could certainly make a fun weekend trip out of it! The best part about all of these activities are that they are outside and offer plenty of space for you to social distance, but yet still enjoy the winter activities.
