Over St. Louis

The iconic St. Louis Arch — formally known as the “Jefferson National Expansion Memorial” or “The Gateway Arch” towers over downtown and can be seen miles away. No matter how many times I experience this engineering marvel designed by Eero Saarinen , it always makes my jaw drop in wonder and amazement. I thank God for every opportunity to see it, touch it, photograph it  and ride its elevator to the top. It is an privilege not to be taken lightly.

I enjoy participating in the Travel Theme Challenge hosted by Where’s My Backpack. This week’s them was “Over”

    1. Hello Joezette. St. Louis is an Amazing Place. Obviously, the St. Louis Arch is a must-see. Beside it runs the Mississippi River, which is a sight to behold in itself. Nearby is the Old Courthouse, where the historic Dred Scott Decision took place.
      One of my favorite things about St. Louis is the magnificent architecture. So many of the buildings are rich in history and have jaw dropping detail.
      Forest Park is often compared to Central Park in NYC. It is vast and full of outdoor activity and museums and unimaginable greenspace.
      For families, there are several museums in or near Forest Park that offer free admission, as once was, including The Zoo, the Art Museum, Museum of Missouri History and more
      If you are into presidential history, there is the Ulysses Grant Historical site and home.
      The famous Clydesdale horses have their place at Grant Farm.
      And who can forget Busch Stadium – home of the Cardinals!
      Enjoy your visit — there is no way to see it all in one trip
