Overview

St. Louis, the largest metropolitan area in Missouri, is a major midwestern metropolis filled with culture.

The Gateway Arch, the world's tallest man-made monument, forms a triumphant city skyline. An open mall surrounded by reflecting pools leads up to the historic court house, the site of the Dred Scott decision, facing the Gateway Arch.
