24 Hours in St Louis, MO

24 Hours in St Louis, MO

I was in St Louis, MO for a business meeting. After the meeting, I gave myself a day to see the highlights of St Louis before I headed home.

I went to the City Museum. I got there, saw that it was more 'family-friendly' and decided it was not for me. Coffee in hand, I headed towards the Gateway Arch. It's an impressive monument and most famous in this city. It's immediately recognizable by its stainless steel structure, rising 600+ft into the air.

What's interesting is that St Louis is the last big city before the big exploration out west by Lewis and Clark in 1804 and 1805. The Gateway Arch is also a national monument so there's park rangers. I paid $14 for a ticket to the top of the arch and a movie. I chose the Lewis and Clark feature as I was more curious about their adventure. The pass is good for 7 days, so I came back the next day for the ride up to the top.
