St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis is home to Gateway Arch, a symbol of St. Louis's status as the "gateway to the West." Guests can ride to the top of the 630-foot structure in small, oval-shaped tram cars, and enjoy views of the river, Busch Stadium, and city hall. Just outside of the city is the sprawling Forest Park, with a free zoo, planetarium, art museum, and ball fields. Don't miss the unique City Museum, an indoor/outdoor playground with massive jungle gyms, tunnels, and a Ferris wheel on the roof.
