This page I wrote for my old rv website RVforSaleGuide.com before developing the Vanabode as the best travel vehicle for cheap easy long term road trips. People still like big rv's despite the much greater cost and trouble to operate, so here's what I know about them.
Gateway Arch in St. Louis Missouri
Gateway Arch - travel information, hotels, food in Saint Louis Missouri. The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park was established on the banks of the Mississippi River in December of 1935. The park includes the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Westward Expansion, and St. Louis' Old Courthouse. St. Louis hotel and camping accommodations are available locally, just check some of the ads on this page.
The Gateway Arch is a stunning stainless steel structure rising 630 feet which is our nation's tallest monument. The Arch's foundations are sunk 60 feet into the ground and is built to withstand earthquakes and high winds.
While taking the exceptional four-minute tram ride to the observation room riders may look out a small window for a view of the Arch's interior. At the top stay as long as you would like overlooking the Mississippi River on one side and city of St. Louis on the other.
Prices for this one-of-a-kind experience range from $10 to $20 adult prices, children and youth prices range from $3 to $17. Tickets include tram, movie, riverboat, tram/movie combination or tram/riverboat combination. For parking you will need to call and get exact directions off the highway, it can be a little tricky.
Travel info - The River Queen Casino RV Park is just across the river and was extremely convenient to the sites. Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, Gateway Arch is located at 11 North 4th Street, St. Louis, Missouri. Map location of Gateway Arch.
