This is another one for all my local STL friends!! If you’ve been on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen some of your friends exploring St. Louis with a little black book that almost looks like a passport.
This is the St. Louis Experience Booklet created and sold by @stlouisgram. I have 2 of them and absolutely love exploring the city with it.
What is the St. Louis Experience Booklet?
St. Louis Gram describes it as the millennials coupon book. Basically, each page of the book has a different coupon for a local business. Amazing places to eat, fun coffee shops, and local retailers are all included in the book.
What do I get with it?
Aside from an excellent excuse to explore St. Louis (and a brand new list of places to try!) you get over $290 worth of free stuff from 35 different local businesses, valid through 2019.
