The giant jungle gym that doubles as an art installation
No childhood summer break was complete if you didn’t spend entire days exploring your backyard jungle gym. Monkey bars! A slide! And maybe swings, if Mommy and Daddy were feeling generous.
And, well, that’s about it, really—your imagination filled in the gaps. But as an adult, even if you were to covertly waste some time on the jungle gym, you would be disappointed.
Unless you visited City Museum in St. Louis. This gigantic art installation, featuring enough architectural artifacts to make your steampunk friend’s head explode, doubles as the world’s coolest jungle gym. Navigating it can involve working your way through treehouses, climbing a giant Slinky, and taking a trip down one of the many, many slides throughout the museum.
So, basically, the only vacation destination that can legitimately claim to please parents and kids in equal measure. See for yourself.
