I used to live in Peoria, Illinois, which is about a two-hours' drive north of Saint Louis. I used to travel to Saint Louis quite often for my job, and just to spend time in the city. Since Peoria has few direct flights anywhere, I frequently changed planes at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport on my way to other American cities.

Although I spent a lot of time in the city, I never took any pictures of the sights and attractions of Saint Louis (this was in my pre-Virtual Tourist days).

However, since joining Virtual Tourist, I find myself returning to places I had visited in the past in order to take pictures so I can build new pages and add new tips. Saint Louis is about a five-hour's drive from where I used to live in Chicago, so I drove to the "Gateway to the West" for a long day trip to take pictures for this long-unbuilt page.

    Very interesting page! Gateway to the West looks very impressive. Old Courthouse in classic style reminds Greece. Thanks david for the virtual tour!

    Thanks for the history lesson and virtual tour of St. Louis! I have always wanted to check the city out myself, but just did not have time on my weekend driving excursion along the Kansas/Missouri border!

    The Gateway Arch is a beautiful symbol & monument to the brave pioneers who ventured out west. St. Louis sure is a beautiful city. Also thanks for comments on my London, England page.

    Since I enjoy Saint Louis so much, I was really enthralled with your Missouri page. Especially enjoyed New Busch Stadium, Old Cathedral, and Planetarium tips. Thanks, Dave.

    Ah, St. Louis: "First in shoes, first in booze, and last in the American league" - but that was a long time ago!
