The Gateway Arch

Downtown

Nothing screams St. Louis quite like the Gateway Arch. Set along the banks of the Mississippi River, the soaring stainless steel arch is a timeless feature of Downtown St. Louis and postcards alike. Visitors can appreciate the lofty monument from the grounds of the surrounding riverfront park or take a tram ride up to the Observation Deck to take in some vertigo-inducing views of the city.

The Vibe

The Arch is sure to impress you with its towering height and expansive views– but it’s also a bit of a mess at the moment. Its grounds are currently undergoing a huge redevelopment and expansion project. Try to ignore the construction cones - they’re a sign of better things to come.

Known For

This “gateway to the west” is the most iconic image of our fair city.

Why Go Here

The Arch is a true St. Louis classic and the views from the top are unbeatable; on a clear day you can see up to 30 miles in every direction. Those who need to wash down a jaw-dropping view with an educational experience can check out the Museum of Westward Expansion located beneath the Arch.

Keep In Mind

The ride to the top of the Arch includes squeezing yourself into a very small elevator pod, so if you’re claustrophobic (or scared of heights) you might want to pass on this one. Our personal favorite way to appreciate the Arch is over a cocktail at Three Sixty bar - no tight squeezes necessary.
