Sitting near the confluence of two great North American rivers — the Mississippi and the Missouri — the St. Louis region has been a favored destination since Lewis & Clark began their historic westward discovery here in 1804. St. Louis is spread along 19 miles of the Mississippi River shoreline.

Dubbed the “Gateway to the West,” St. Louis welcomes its visitors with the world’s tallest arch (630 ft.) which was completed in 1965 as a monument to Thomas Jefferson and the westward expansion of the United States. The Gateway Arch is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and has become an internationally famous symbol of the city.
