The Arch is the actually called the “Gateway Arch” as it is the gateway to the west. But for us St. Louisians it’s more of a skyline staple and directional point.
Touring the Arch can be fun because you can see almost all of downtown. This tour of the Arch can be an adventure, especially on a windy day. The entire Arch sways back and forth in the breeze making it every acrophobic (fear of heights but not being high) and claustrophobic’s dream.
You should visit it if you’re a St. Louis resident or a visitor (or anything in between) because it’s got a killer view and it’s a big part of St. Louis. I'll see you somewhere lost in St. Louis.
