While very few good things happened in 2020, it genuinely warmed my heart that on October 30, Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park was established as a unit of the National Park Service.
Ste. Genevieve, if you’re curious, is a little town about an hour south of St. Louis. It was established in 1750, the first and oldest European settlement in Missouri. French architecture dots the town, as the French Canadians were the first to settle there. The town is beautifully preserved, and walking through the streets feels like stepping back through time.
This is a national park with so much to offer its visitors. Which is why I’m so excited to share my guest post on fellow travel writer Riley’s blog, Parks Expert, where I offer 10 Exciting Things to Do in Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park!
