Things to do around the LOU

Grant's Farm opens this weekend! 

You can ride the new Deer Park Safari! It's an exclusive tour and you do have to make a reservation.  This is for 12 people and you will get a chance to go on a behind the scenes tour of Grant`s Park.  You will feed the animals right off the vehicle.  You will also get a chance to walk through Hardscrabble, Grant`s cabin.  It's a log cabin just off Gravois that was built by the 18th president Ulysses S. Grant, you can walk through the building.

As always at Grant's farm you can feed goats, parakeets, there are animal encounter shows, camel rides and Budweiser Clydesdale tours.
