Gateway to the West

Saint Louis is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in panoramic vistas at The Gateway Arch, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, and get thoroughly spooked out with STL Haunted History.

The Show-Me State
Acquired from France as part of the famous Louisiana Purchase, Missouri offers visitors equal amounts of urban and rural tourist attractions, with a good sprinkling of lush valleys and meandering back roads ideal for leisurely road trips. The state has a highly varied geography, ranging from the till plains in the north to the rolling Ozark Mountains in the south. The state sits at the intersection of North America's three greatest rivers, creating fertile plains known for supporting extensive farms and ranches. Now generally considered part of the country's Midwest, most people used to count Missouri among the southern states, primarily due to its status as a slave state before the Civil War.
