St. Louis isn't just home to one of the most beautiful parks on Planet Earth -- it's also the number one best city in the Midwest for weekend getaways!

So says a new report that gives us here at Daily RFT another reason to remember why we love St. Louis. AAA's Midwest Traveler Magazine has released results of its annual Best of the Midwest readers poll and St. Louis has taken the number one spot for weekend trips, in front of Kansas City and then Chicago. Hooray!

It was apparently a very close race, but some key St. Louis attractions may have helped push the vote in our favor.

The magazine cites the city's notable free and affordable attractions and activities, of which there are lots. As the mag says, "You're going to need more than a weekend."

Indeed.

Some of the (pretty obvious) highlights from the announcement:
