    On busy days, get your tickets to go up in the arch as early as possible. Sometimes you have to wait several hours after buying your tickets.

    I don't know what I was expecting here, but it was definitely a sight to see. Kinda hard to take a picture of it but maybe I should have brought a wide angle lense...

    Plan ahead if you're wanting to tour. We arrived around 10am and it was already sold out for the day.

    The tram was freaky but the view is beautiful was at the top. You may feel like you are sliding but the arch is on an angle

    Great free movie at the bottom of the arch. Was disappointed that the ride to the top was closed for repairs as we were looking forward to it.

    A great monument! Such a cool thing for Missouri. It's very neat to visit and the riverside view from it is pretty amazing!

    My dad helped build this monument. Great views at the top. If you are claustrophobic, you may not like the 5 minutes it takes to get topside in the odd little elevators...

    You've got to do the ride to the top at least once. I've found Sunday evenings to be the least busy, I had the usually cramped egg shaped lift to myself. No lines, did it all in 20 mins!

    They are literally ruining the Arch. I will not be back. I loved sitting or laying in the grass underneath. Now. It is going to be solid concrete. so sad. We lost our bit of paradise within the City.
  • Leila D.
    The journey is awesome ! But they are under construction around the arch ! We took long time to up !! If you can wait for the finish is better !!

    We got nice shots from the top in spite of it being overly crowded up top. Not sure the point of appointed times when no one pays attention and they send so many people up at one time nonstop.

    Sadly construction had this icon closed to the public so you can not get to it or anything like it, looks like a multi year project in and around this Icon..

    Glad I did it so it's off my bucket list but wow it's crowded and air conditioning couldn't keep up. I'm a bit claustrophobic so it was a challenge but the ride up and down is only 4 minutes.

    What else is there to say? Make sure you schedule your visit to go in the arch.

    The St. Louis landmark is a fun place to start a 3-day road trip that follows the Mighty Missouri. Hit Jefferson City and end in Kansas City. Channel your inner Lewis & Clark the entire way!

    The ride to the top was cozy. The top of the arch was the most incredible view imaginable. Then on the ride down, there were only two of us in the "car" and it was still cozy, but even more fun!

    I was there too late to take the elevator (which is fine, because heights are evil), but the arch itself is absolutely amazing. Going in, I thought it would be great, but it's actually amazing!
