The Arch
When someone says “St. Louis,” the iconic Gateway Arch, or the “Gateway to the West,” springs to mind. Visitors to the stainless steel monument can ride an elevator 630 feet up to get an expansive view of St. Louis and the surrounding area. Visitors also can tour the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial below the Arch to find out more about the history of Lewis and Clark, who took off from St. Louis on their journey exploring the western United States.
