Bob and I flew out on Monday (Memorial Day) and ended up with a 3 1/2 hour layover in St. Louis. I offhandedly suggested we take a trip to see the Arch, and Bob ran with it! He figured out how to get there using the MetroLink, and we were out of the airport within 15 minutes!
The Arch is SO awesome, I had been there once before but had forgotten how massive and beautiful the structure really is!
A replica of the original trams that were used to get to the top of the Arch. Unfortunately, we were unable to get tickets to go to the top since we were on a time schedule with our flight (and there were a lot of people there since it was a holiday) but we still enjoyed getting to take a little excursion from the airport!
We snapped a few more pictures
That’s us at the bottom!
And a selfie!
Said goodbye to the Arch, and we were back on the MetroLink headed to the airport with plenty of time to spare!
