Gateway Arch, St Louis

An iconic image of St Louis, the Gateway Arch stands 192m tall and 192m wide at it’s base making it the US’s tallest monument. Visitors can reach the observation deck via an elevator sytem comprised of a series of small pod-like trams. On a clear day the view can stretch for 30 miles!

  1. The St. Louis riverfront and the Arch are under renovation. The trams to the top of the arch are currently closed for the time being. I recommend that you inquire with the St. Louis board of tourism, before you add this to you travel plans.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
