For our inaugural MAX List issue, we have compiled a list of the best, sometimes-overlooked entertainment, food and drinks, parks and more that the St. Louis region has to offer. From your favorite picnic spot to the best head shops in town and everything in between, we’ve got you covered. And with several options to choose from in each category, there’s something for everyone from all walks of life. So get out there and maximize your life in this amazing city we call home.
