"take the tram ride up to the..." Missouri Favorite Tip by kahiwa

Missouri General: 31 reviews and 27 photos

Favorite thing: take the tram ride up to the top of the arch in St. Louis. Nice view of the city if the air isn't too smoggy. Visit Union Station, a converted railway station that now houses shops and restaurants. MUST take a tour of the Anheuser Busch brewery, just because of its size and to see the massive beer vats.

Fondest memory: I wouldn't call it my 'fondest' memory, but it is the most memorable experience: seeing the city and surrounding areas by air prior to landing. This was just after the big mid-west floods, and you could still see the erosion marks on the land from the high water marks. Some parts of St.Louis were still slightly flooded near the docks, but all in all the city had recovered well. The power of nature was awesome to see.
