St. Louis's Gateway Arch symbolizes the city's role in westward expansion during the 19th century. Its sleek steel construction arches 630 feet above the city and the Mississippi river, making this America's tallest national park monument. It's possible to buy tickets for a tram ride to the top where you can experience great views of St. Louis. However, there are long waits during the summer and on weekends so the best time to visit is early in the day.

It's $7 for an adult ticket up to the top in the tram. Tickets including the sound and light shows or one of the documentaries are more expensive. Kids are $5.
