"You can't go to St Louis and..." Gateway Arch Tip by Kay_C

Gateway Arch, Saint Louis: 81 reviews and 142 photos


You can't go to St Louis and not see the arch! It's huge!
The graceful, stainless steel curve of the Gateway Arch which stands 630 feet above the Mississippi River has become the internationally recognized symbol of St. Louis. Designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen and completed in 1965, the structure's stainless steel sheathing provides a glimmering reflection of sunrise and sunset along the Mississippi.
The museum within the arch dedicated to Western Expansion/Lewis and Clark is spectacular.
