To Do: St. Louis Gateway Arch

This is a Must See!

The Gateway Arch, also known as the Gateway to the West, is an integral part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and the iconic image of St. Louis, Missouri. It was designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen and structural engineer Hannskarl Bandel in 1947. It stands 630 feet tall, and is 630 feet wide at its base, making it the tallest monument in the United States. The top of the Gateway Arch is just one of the amazing sights to see while at the Gateway Arch Riverfront. Other activities, from browsing the Museum of Westward Expansion, to viewing the latest exhibits at the Historic Old Courthouse, to watching a giant-screen movie in our state-of-the-art theater, to taking a sightseeing cruise are all just a few steps away.
