No visit to St. Louis is complete without a stop at the Gateway Arch this massive monument can be seen from miles away and is even a sight to see driving by it on the highway. The one issue is though, at least this summer it was impossible to get to it. There is construction and many road closures making a GPS almost useless to navigate to the lot for the Arch. Finally we got there after a bit of backtracking and made our way up to the Arch to see this thing up close!
The Gateway Arch is really something to see up close, there’s not much to do in the Arch or the museum but being up close to the thing really is something special. Don’t expect to spend a whole day at the Arch, just a few hours to take it all in and then move on to the next adventure! Well that concludes our Missouri trip, so the next update will be back to roller coasters I promise. 🙂
