The nationís tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors for more than 40 years with its iconic, awe-inspiring shape. The vision of renowned architect Eero Saarinen, the Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and St. Louisí role in the westward expansion of the United States. A visit to St. Louis isnít complete without standing at its base and playing professional photographer, and the view from the outside is only half of the experience.
Attractions within the Arch are the Journey to the Top, the Museum of Westward Expansion, educational programs, two movies and shopping.
