Top ten things to see in the U.S.A. west of Memphis?

If anyone has suggestions for unforgettable places or things to do, I'm all ears!

I should add that I have a 10 year old daughter, an 8 year old son and a lovely wife.. We took our kids to the museum of play in Rochester last year and they still talk about it, as much as Disney!

Thanks,

I still remember my first visit -as a youngster- to the
Shedd Aquarium,
The Museum of Science and Industry and the
Field Museum of Natural History.
The view off the top of the Sears tower ain't bad either
Oh, yeah, these are all in Chicago on Lakeshore drive.

Branson, MO has to be on the top 10, the whole area is strictly family oriented and Silver Dollar City is a blast for all ages as is Shepard of the Hills. If you go to Silver Dollar City, make sure you take the cave tour and eat in the Old Silver Mine, the kids will have a blast panning for silver (really solder) but they really have fun eating off old tin pie pans and drinking out of fruit jars.

Ride up into the Arch in St Louis, take in a ball game there.
Pick a National Park, Grand Canyon a sure bet.

any of the floatable rivers in mo (black, jacks fork, current river, meremac) are generally family freindly during the week and less crowded too. on the weekends, the young beer drinkers come out to play. missouri is beginning to clamp down on some of it as i witnessed last year when a group of young folks were caught with their beer and weed. sucked to be them.

as mentioned, branson and silver dollar city are very family freindly.

caverns, whether mammoth cave or carlsbad caverns or any others. that's a trip. the kids will love it. my kids are 18 & 23 and they still talk about the carlsbad trip we took when they were younger. probably because once at the bottom, the lights were shut off! that brings a whole new meaning to the term "pitch black". some folks screamed, most kids grabbed their parents' hands, some giggled. but the mind did wonder. yeah, i'll admit i know enough about electrical breakers to be dangerous, but sometimes they don't reset....i just prayed that they would so i wouldn't have to sit at the bottom in the dark!

Mt Rushmore and surrounding area plenty to do for everyone and if your feel adventurous come north to Medora ND for the musical.

Black Hills area in South Dakota is stuff full of things to see and do, just avoid it during the Sturgis Bike rally time, unless your into motorcycles.
