The St. Louis Gateway Arch is remarkable. The Arch is the tallest national monument in the United States at 630 feet and you just don't realize how tall that is until you've stood beside it. The Museum of Westward Expansion is housed at the bottom of the Arch. To tour the museum and see the Arch itself is all free and the view of the Arch along the river is beautiful but you can also pay to ride the tram in the Arch. It is definitely something you will not forget.
