Also known as the portal or getaway to the west, the Getaway Arch is an impressive sight, facing the St. Louis Riverfront.

What is really worth it, is the view from the top, which is absolutely breathtaking. The tour guide is really nice and helpful, answering all your questions. Try to go during the week, because in the weekend the place is packed!
