Top 10 Fun Things to do in O'Fallon MO
O’Fallon is a Missouri city of 91,300 residents, so you can bet there’s plenty to do.
There’s always dinner and a movie as an option but we want to give you some other recommendations for when you want to try something different.
To make it as simple as possible for you, here are our 10 recommendations in alphabetical order.
18 North Central
The tagline for 18 North Central is, “Where grown-ups come to play with family and friends.” This is an amusement center for adults featuring laser tag, ax-throwing, and something called cybersport demo ball.
This is a game for 10 or more players, a blend between lacrosse and bumper cars. You drive a unique bumper car and attempt to guide a ball toward your goal while blocking the opposite team.
You can also rent “The Loft,” a 4,000 square foot event space for up to 200 guests for your wedding reception or another event. Or, you can get a party package for the games and a buffet.
Cloud Nine Massage
Stressed out from modern life? Cloud Nine Massage can help you relax. They offer various types of massage and services, including barefoot massage, deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, couples’ massage, pregnancy massage, and Reiki.
Fort Zumwalt Park
Bring your family to this 48-acre public park surrounding Lake Whetsel for a fun day. Fort Zumwalt Park has a playground for kids, a picnic pavilion, and a shelter house to relax in or explore. It’s also the home to the reconstructed homestead of Jacob Zumwalt, founder of O’Fallon.
You can also walk or cycle along the trails and from February to October every year, you can fish in the lake.
The reconstructed home at Fort Zumwalt Park isn’t the only historic building in O’Fallon. There’s also the Krekel Home, which was home to one of the men who helped found O’Fallon, Nicholas Krekel. His brother, Arnold Krekel, helped found the city, too, but this is where Nicholas lived.
He built it in the 1850s facing the Missouri Railroad. For a while, the first floor was a general store, and later the post office. You can now explore the home to get a taste of 19th-century life. The O’Fallon Historical Society maintains the building.
Lillian Yahn Gallery
Lillian Yahn Gallery, run by the Crossroads Arts Council, showcases art by local artists. It includes art studios and a boutique and teaches classes. It’s dedicated to journalist Lillian Yahn, who was part of the Oak Leaf Artists’ Guild and the St. Charles Artists’ Guild.
You can expect to see a new artist showcased every month, such as Brenda Frasier, who was featured in July 2021.
Here’s another big park with lots of enjoyable space. O’Day Park is 57 acres large. It includes an adventure playground, picnic pavilions, lots of walking paths, an amphitheater where performances are often staged, and a beautiful building, O’Day Lodge, which you can reserve for special occasions. The park is filled with shady trees and plants.
