Thirty Miles in Every Direction

By Linda Tancs

In St. Louis, Missouri, the Gateway Arch is more than just a great view (30 miles in every direction, in fact): it’s a gateway to the past.  Symbolizing the nation’s westward expansion, the steel-clad monument is home to the Museum of Westward Expansion, a Lewis and Clark inspired tribute to the Old West and the explorers who helped forge a nation.  Animatronic figures bring the past to life, along with interactive exhibits including a tipi and covered wagon.
