St. Louis is full of fun and exciting things to do for people of all ages and interests! Whether you are a tourist in St. Louis or have lived there for a while, there is always something new and exciting to go see! This list includes five attractions that will be worth your time and money.

The Gateway Arch

The Gateway Arch is a well-known landmark in St. Louis. Being the United States’ tallest man-made monument at 630 feet high, it is hard to miss. It’s true that this is a more touristy attraction, but don’t let that keep you from visiting. Riding the tram to the top and seeing the breathtaking views of the city is well worth the visit. You also might want to mark your calendars for the Gateway Arch museum opening in July 2018.

Saint Louis Zoo

Another amazing attraction is the Saint Louis Zoo. One of its awesome features is that the entry fee is free. Don’t think that because it’s free that it won’t be worth a visit. Not only is this zoo free, but it is America’s top free attraction. This zoo has a variety of animals including Chinese alligators, giant anteaters, cheetahs, all kinds of birds, and even kangaroos.
