View the city from the top of the 630-ft. Gateway Arch
The stainless steel monument, commonly known as "The Gateway to the West," is dedicated to the thousands of pioneers who set out from Missouri to settle the American West.

Explore Forest Park, the site of the fabled 1904 St. Louis World's Fair
With nearly 1,300 acres, Forest Park is one of the largest city parks in the country and it's a hub of culture in St. Louis. Visit the Jewel Box, a greenhouse full of vibrant flora, and the historic World's Fair Pavilion while strolling between the park's interconnected lakes.
Take the family to City Museum
Made of recycled, re-purposed and found objects ranging from jet planes to concrete animals, the place is meant for climbing on and monkeying around—literally. Get lost among the features, including an aquarium, Enchanted Caves full of weird and fantastical animals, an exceptional miniature railroad and—last but not least—the world's largest pencil.
