I leaned heavily on the reviewers at Trip Advisor for help in finding free options in Missouri that are beyond ordinary. I believe every single one of their top 10 qualifies. Here are what travel reviewers have said on their site are the best places in Missouri where you can almost leave your wallet or purse at home.

Ha Ha Tonka State Park

St. Louis Union Station

Branson Landing

Grant's Farm

College of the Ozarks

Forest Park St. Louis

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis

St. Louis Zoo

The funny thing is this is just the tip of the (free) Missouri iceberg. Trip Advisor has literally pages and pages of Missouri attractions where you don't have to get the wallet out at all for admission.

Say what you want about Missouri, but there are so many things that are either free or affordable that families can do, the possibilities are endless. Check out Trip Advisor for more adventure possibilities for the cost of nothing.
