St. Louis, MO

Eads Bridge — Arch — Downtown

The most recognizable landmark in the city (and one of the most recognizable internationally), the Gateway Arch is at the heart of downtown St. Louis, and sits on the west bank of the Mississippi River. The arch is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park, operated by the National Park Service. With most hotels a few blocks to a half mile away from this park, this double loop route runs from the Convention Center, around the park, and along the waterfront of the Mississippi River.
