We Climb Because They Climbed—that’s the tagline for the recent Clayton 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb, which invites participants to climb 110 flights of stairs (the same number as in the World Trade Center Buildings) to raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. This year’s climb raised more than $55,000, honoring the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. Firefighters and paramedics completed the trek in full gear, wearing a picture of a firefighter who died in the attack. Monarch firefighter Nick Smith was this year’s top individual fundraiser.

Outside, a line of vintage luxury passenger cars awaited, ready to take us on a two-hour ride through town for a preview of what’s in store this summer: the return of train service to what was once one of America’s grandest terminals. Soon, passengers departing from Union Station will have their choice of excursions to Chicago, Kansas City or Missouri Wine Country.
Nothing says summer like a festive outdoor fete. Lucky for us, St. Louis has a full slate of art and entertainment under the summer sun and stars—many with the welcoming perk of free admission. So, as the season starts to heat up, be sure to save the date for these festival favorites.
