Probably the most scenic icon in St Louis and known throughout the world, this is the St Louis arch. Completed in 1965, the arch was designed to commemerate westward expansion by pioneers such as Lewis and Clark. The arch is 630 feet tall and contains an elevator to take you on a ride to the top. I've never been to the top but I'll bet the view is amazing.
