For their 3rd time, The two RV Gypsies visited
the Gateway Arch
in St. Louis, Missouri
May 2022

St. Louis is the second-largest city in Missouri. It sits near the confluence of the Mississippi and the Missouri Rivers, on the western bank of the latter. History began with the settlement of the St. Louis area by Native American mound builders who lived as part of the Mississippian culture from the 9th century to the 15th century, followed by other migrating tribal groups. Nicknames are "Gateway to the West", The Gateway City, Mound City, The Lou, Rome of the West, River City, The STL, Saint Lou, and The Queen City.

Among the city's many notable sights is the 630-foot Gateway Arch in Downtown St. Louis (shown below, with a link to previous visits when the two RV Gypsies actually went up inside the Arch).

Gateway Arch became a National Park in 2018. The two RV Gypsies stopped here again to see if anything changed, so they did not take a lot of pictures because many more photos plus the history of The Arch can be reached on their 2009 and 2017 pages.

At 630 feet, the Gateway Arch is the world's tallest arch and tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere. Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, it is the centerpiece of Gateway Arch National Park which was known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial until 2018.
