Tips

  • The Gateway Arch, also known as the Gateway to the West, is the tallest national monument in the U.S. Construction began on Feb. 12, 1963, with the last section put into place on Oct. 28, 1965.
  • bring a camera.
  • Walk to the north and see Eads Bridge. It was the longest arch bridge in the world at the time it was built in 1874.
  • Run up and down the stairs like Rocky does!
  • Take a ride to the top
  • Don't fart in the Tram car.
  • On May 27, 1896, the Great Cyclone killed 137 in St. Louis and 118 in East St. Louis. Its path roughly followed today's Interstate 44, crossing the Mississippi River at the Gateway Arch.
  • I recommend going to the Museum of Westward Expansion. (Especially if you're a history buff)
  • You are only blocks from one of the most historical courts of America. Go over to the Historic Old Court House on Broadway and Market streets.
  • Explore the city and make a visit to the historic Gateway Arch. Relax by the riverfront and have a picnic with the family!
  • Buy tickets online to skip the lines... Also, you can buy tram, movie, cruise, and parking tickets in packages to save money. Tram is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Parking is $6 or $4 before 9 a.m.
  • Simply beautiful.
  • Go to the top on a really windy day and feel the arch sway from side to side. (Not for those who suffer seasickness.)
  • go to the top (finally after 7 years in STL)
  • On a windy day, the Arch sways - a little. No worries, though - Its meant to sway one inch per 20 mph of wind & up to 18 inches in 150 mph winds. For more insider tips, follow @MoonriseHotel
  • There is an arch here.
  • Security line at the south entrance is much shorter
  • This thang is tall yo.
  • After you take in St. Louis' most iconic landmark, head north to Laclede's Landing. A warehouse district in the 19th century, it's now home to some of the best restaurants in the city.
  • Beautiful views!!!!
