The residents of Creve Coeur and Olivette work hard and, in turn, play hard, too. With a myriad of cultural offerings nearby— including theaters and casinos as well as daily outdoor activities and the City of St. Louis less than a half hour east, there is never a dull moment in these suburbs.

Two contemporary state-of-the-art, stadium seating, cinema complexes are located at the western and eastern boundaries of Creve Coeur.

For live entertainment, First Run Theatre, is dedicated to showcasing new unpublished theatrical productions.

Just west of Creve Coeur lies Faust Park, where guests will find hundreds of tropical butterflies flying free in the Butterfly House. Children and adults alike may ride on the circa 1920 Carousel and visit the working Historic Village.

The entire St. Louis region is rich in cultural history. The home of the 1904 World’s Fair was located in Forest Park. Nearly 1,300 acres of park include The Muny, America’s largest outdoor amphitheater which produces Broadway musicals under the stars; the St. Louis Art Museum, one of the nation’s leading comprehensive art museums with more than 30,000 works of art; and the St. Louis Science Center, Jewel Box and the Missouri History Museum. The world-famous St. Louis Zoo has 5,000 animals from 700 species on 90 acres including an insectarium, a children's zoo and a miniature train. The zoo is free for all visitors including those from out of state. St. Louis is also home to The Fox Theatre and the famous St. Louis Symphony.
