St. Louis reaches new heights in an ranking of the world’s best rooftop bars. The 360 lounge overlooking Busch Stadium is number two.  360 beat out roof-top bars in Mumbai, New York, Hong Kong and Toronto. The Shanghai Hyatt was first.

St. Louis Zoo comes in as number two in the nation, according to  San Diego was sixth. Omaha was first. Free admission noted.

And the Missouri Botanical Garden’s reputation is growing. It’s one of the country’s ten best botanical gardens in an AOL Style-List ranking.

Sounds like a recipe for a staycation.
