St. Louis Union Station

Once a bustling hub of railway activity, this station has been renovated to restore its stunning architecture, and it is now a busy attraction for tourists and locals. People flock here to eat at the different restaurants, shop in the marketplace and enjoy free entertainment events. There is a lake, complete with fish and turtles, where you can ride a paddleboat. Kids of all ages will be delighted with the carousel and Ferris wheel. A 10-screen movie theater is also on site, and the station plays host to many events and festivals throughout the year.

Gateway Arch

Completed in October 1965 the Gateway Arch was designed to last 1,000 years. The Arch was built to represent Thomas Jefferson's dream of a United States that stretched from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast. At a spectacular 630 feet (192 meters), the monumental structure features a stainless steel facade that represents the city's legacy as the Gateway to the West. A tram zips to the top of the monument and one can see 360-degree views for 30 miles (48 kilometers) around the city. The Arch stands within the larger Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and is a testament to American engineering at its finest.

Laclede's Landing

The district is named after Pierre Laclede, the man who founded St. Louis. Amuse yourself by walking on the cobblestone streets or, if you are feeling bold, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy the view of the riverboat casinos on the Mississippi. There are several restaurants to choose from, and when the weather permits, you can dine outside and listen to the street musicians. Partake in a dinner theater show at the Royal Dumpe, which is actually a lot better than the name implies.

Reaching Elephant (St. Louis Zoo)

At the south entrance of the St. Louis Zoo is a new feature to greet visitors: the Reaching Elephant. This sculpture, made of bronze, is part of a collection of new installments at the south entrance by artist Kent Ullberg. The Reaching Elephant is 19 feet tall and since it is made of pure bronze, it weighs over two tons. Moreover, these sculptures are part of a USD5 million renovation of the zoo and certainly add texture to the entrance. Since the elephant is technically located outside of the zoo's entrance, it can be viewed by passers by at any time of the day or night. - Cathryn D. Blue

Warthogs (St. Louis Zoo)

T.D. Kelsey is one of the artists who contributed to the new installments at the St. Louis Zoo. Art that represents animals normally doesn't feature the warthog, but Kelsey and the zoo family understand how captivating these animals can be. The Warthogs bronze sculpture is a life-sized scene of a warthog family. The artist truly captured the dignity and serenity of these animals in a beautiful way. This bronze sculpture sits outside of the park at the south entrance, so even when the zoo is closed, passers by can enjoy the sculptures. - Cathryn D. Blue
