I promised you a series of posts on Missouri. Here it is! We are going to St. Louis for a brief visit of the Arch and its surroundings.
As you may or may not know, I’m not a huge fan of heights or confined spaces, but my girlfriend and I braved the elevator and went all the way to the top. Pretty cool experience. The views are quite amazing from up there! The Gateway Arch National Park comprises the Gateway Arch but also the Old Courthouse and its surroundings. The Arch is the tallest monument in the nation. Feel free to read more about its history and construction here.
