Christmas in St. Louis: Holiday Escape Rooms & More Fun Activities

Christmas in St. Louis is the perfect time to explore new activities or maintain your Christmas traditions. Many people visit St. Louis during the holidays because we have so many events and activities to offer. Locals get out to take in all the seasonal offerings that downtown STL and the surrounding areas offer. Holiday escape rooms, the Anheuser Busch Brewery Lights, activities at Union Station, and Christmas Traditions® in St. Charles are some of our favorite activities this Christmas.

Holiday Escape Rooms

Mastermind Room Escape has award-winning holiday escape rooms. Check out both Home Alone and Elf Escape for an excellent and joyous experience. Many customers note, "It's not Christmas if I haven't done one of Mastermind's holiday escape rooms." The holiday escape rooms are available in downtown STL (across from the Arch in Gentry's Landing) or St. Charles. You can book online with two people or groups up to 14. If you have more people in your group, contact us, and we'll figure out a way for your entire group to celebrate Christmas at Mastermind.

Anheuser Busch Brewery Lights

The Anheuser Busch Brewery Lights is a must-see activity each year. For $10, you get a complimentary beer and access to over a million Christmas lights. It's not just lights and beer. There are activities, including live music. Check out the website schedule to see when you want to go.

Ice Skating at Steinberg Rink in Forest Park

The Steinberg Ice Rink is one of the most popular places to skate because there are no limitations on the length of time you can skate.
