Budweiser966 viewsOne rainy morning in St. Louis, we decided that a free tour of the Budweiser brewery might be the ticket to stay out of the rain. However, once on the tour, we found out that much of it involved walking outside! It wasn't too bad, though, and was interesting, even though the two of us aren't beer drinkers.

Indy 500 Museum723 viewsInside the museum itself was car after car of winners of many of the 500 races. I'm not sure how they have collected all these -- some were replicas but most were the actual vehicles. In this picture, Tim sits in a replica which you were actually allowed to enter.
