The Arch! Go to the Arch! What a neat once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride in a tiny little pod up to the top of the world's only arch you can travel up in! It's not for claustrophobic or those afraid of heights, however. Wanna take a picture of yourselves by the arch? Here's how! Have your subject stand in front of the arch wherever you like, then lie down on the ground and point your camera up at your subject with the whole arch in the background. It will be such a neat picture. Also, if you ever get the chance to be in St. Louis for the Monster Truck Jam, go! It's so fun, so loud, and worth every penny!

I loved this hotel! Talk about close to everything! If you are going to the Edward Jones Stadium or the America's Center, stay here! It's right next door.

There was also free HOT breakfast every morning, friendly, friendly staff, and did I mention that I loved this hotel? One pitfall was that the walls are paper-thin; maybe not all of them, but ours was, and we could hear the people next door all the time. Luckily, it was our family traveling with us. All the good of this hotel outweighs the paper-thin walls.

"OH! OH! OH!" That's what you'll be saying after your first bite at this place! It's got a great atmosphere, a great staff, and even a balloon artist. It's great for families and, oh wow, for great food! I recommend the spinach tortellini with Alfredo sauce. De-licious! For romance, grab a horse-drawn carriage to drive you through Laclede's Landing to the restaurant. You'll love it! FYI: When we went at around 7pm on a Friday night it was swamped and we waited for about 30 minutes but it was worth the wait.
