St. Louis is a super fun city in Missouri, the home of the Gateway Archway. We were a little apprehensive to get in the tiny 2 person elevator with 4 people in it and go up in the archway, but the view was worth it for all the travel photography opportunities. When you're in the city, you've got to go up in it. I would also recommend visiting the City Museum too. It's pretty much a no-rules playground of everyone of all ages. It even had a massive slide all the way down to the ground floor - of course we went down it. Here is what the website says to explain this amazing place: "Housed in the 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company, the museum is an eclectic mixture of children’s playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects. The brainchild of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly, a classically trained sculptor and serial entrepreneur, the museum opened for visitors in 1997 to the riotous approval of young and old alike."
