Amid the hustle and bustle of St. Louis, there’s a place where life moves at a slower pace. It’s the quaint, cozy and historic suburb of Kirkwood, Missouri. Here you can enjoy Missouri attractions, both old fashioned and modern, all amid picturesque Victorian homes. Reserve your Kirkwood rental car for a memorable roadtrip around this historic and quaint area.
Ebsworth Park’s Frank Lloyd Wright House
Make your Thrifty rental car’s first stop this unique home in Kirkwood, Missouri. The home stands as a testament to why Frank Lloyd Wright is remembered as a treasure in 20th century American architecture. At 1,900 square feet, the home’s size is modest, but it’s big on beauty and was designed to be affordable for middle-class families. The exterior complements the wooded setting. And inside, the home showcases Wright’s talent for interior design. Unlike some other Wright houses, all of the furnishings that Wright created remain in tact and on display.
Casa Magnolia Bed and Breakfast
Charming attractions call for an equally special place to stay and recharge for each day of your trip. And at 4171 Magnolia Avenue, you can’t help but relax and rejuvenate. Casa Magnolia Bed and Breakfast is in a Victorian house where each of the three bedrooms feature beautiful woodwork and antiques. Plus, the Missouri Botanical Garden is just a short stroll away.
Kirkwood Farmer’s Market
From April to September, this market between Highway 40 and I-44 is your destination for produce, baked goods, crafts and family fun. This historic market offers items from hundreds of local vendors and businesses as well as the chance to explore charming seasonal events. From May to September, there’s live music in the morning. July brings the Peach Festival that features a taste contest and plenty of peach-flavored products. Late September tops it all off with the Harvest Festival, an apple-themed event showcasing many varieties of apples, cider, apple pies and more. So, point your Thrifty rental car’s GPS to the market and experience Missouri agriculture and charm at its best.
