“Gateway to the West”

The Gateway Arch reflects St. Louis' role in the Westward Expansion of the United States during the nineteenth century. The park is a memorial to Thomas Jefferson's role in opening the West, to the pioneers who helped shape its history, and to Dred Scott who sued for his freedom in the Old Courthouse.

This was my second visit to the arch and again we thoroughly enjoyed the trip - the arch sits beautifully against the St Louis skyline and within a beautiful park. Beneath the park you can visit a museum which walks you through the history of the area or you can go up to the observation deck and look out over both sides of the river. A definite must visit for your trip to St Louis.

My dad told me before I ever visited that the ride up is something else and he's right. You ride up in these little pods that stop and pivot to get up the arch. It's quite the experience. The other crazy part is the arched floor in the observation deck. How can anyone visit St. Louis and not go up in the arch?! Worth the wait to knock this off your bucket list!

This thing is absolutely massive! It is without a doubt in my mind worth the 10 or so dollars to ride in the tiny elevator for the view from the top! Its a must see in st. louis and a place you will most likely not forget as its not something you see everyday!

The area under the arch is great for a picnic or just to hang around with family. The arch tour is very fun! Expect to wait a long while before getting into the tour as people come from all over the country to visit.
Make sure your ready to take photos when you get to the top.

The wait to go up to the top of the Arch was several hours and we couldn't wait. Buy tickets in advance! Also, the museum inside is poorly laid out and confusing to wander through.

Breathtaking. So much bigger than I'd imagined and the view from the top is something else - not to mention the ride to it.

Beautiful park grounds beneath the arch and a really fun and retro trip up to the top! Definitely worth then stopping for.

A great attraction, perfect for a family visit. Get there early and be sure to buy your tickets in advance if you want to ride up to the top of the Arch, although warning to claustrophobics and tall people that the pods you ride up in are incredibly cramped. Down on the ground, the museum is great and there are two films to see: a documentary about the construction of the arch that impresses with it's dizzying heights, and an IMAX film about the expedition of Lewis and Clark, both well-worth the price of admission.

While there, take a walk over to the Old Courthouse to learn about the Dred Scott case, and also to get some incredible photos of the Arch from a distance.
