Going to see the arch is a must-do if you are visiting St. Louis! It is such an amazing view and experience. The ride in the neat little elevator can be a little scary, but it is all part of the fun. The views from on top of the arch are amazing. You can view downtown St. Louis and the Mississippi River and can get great pictures for your scrapbooks. You can buy your tickets online before going to the Arch , which can save you a lot of time!
