Located in the country's first viticulture area, with 10 wineries within 15 minutes, Defiance is the gateway to Missouri's Augusta wine district. Enjoy a day of sightseeing & take in some of the scenery while enjoying a glass of Missouri wine at some of the most beautiful wineries in the country! If outdoor activities are your thing, hop on the historic KATY trail located literally in the backyard of our property for a bike ride along the bluffs (bike rentals 1 block)! Take the kids fishing or hunting at Klondike Park or in the August A. Busch Memorial Area. Craving a history lesson? Travel 5 miles to the historic Daniel Boone Home. Casual & fine dining options within minutes to accommodate any budget. Beautiful outdoor & indoor wedding venues to make your day special, with spa & bridal makeup/hair packages available for your party. For a fabulous day trip, head out to downtown St. Louis & enjoy our art galleries, museums, The St. Louis Zoo, The Gateway Arch, or take in a sporting event at Busch Stadium (home of the St. Louis Cardinals), The Edward Jones Dome (home of The Rams), Scottrade Center (home of The Blues), or Chaifetz Arena (home of SLU men's & women's basketball). Cap off the evening on 'The Hill' where some of the best Italian cuisine in the country can be found. Spend the following day visiting The Missouri Botanical Gardens, Forest Park, The Butterfly House, Grant's Farm or the Science Center. Further south, but still a short day trip is the renowned Meramec Caverns, reputed hideout for the outlaw, Jesse James. If a more action-adventure packed day is what your after, visit Six Flags over Mid-America featuring a state of the art water park. Lastly, but surely not least (or all), depending on time of year, visit Alton, just a hop across the river into Illinois to see the bald eagles.
