Route 66 – part 4

Today we are in St Louis for a little look around this lovely place. The Gateway Arch just dominates the skyline at 630ft tall, it even has a tram to take you to the top to look out over the city. The park is a memorial to Thomas Jefferson’s role in opening the Westward expansion to the west. Clad in stainless steel and built-in the form of a flattened catenary arch, it is the world’s tallest arch, the tallest monument in the Western Hemisphere, and Missouri’s tallest accessible building. What an incredible structure.

We went on to find that the old Union Station had been turned into an amazing hotel.

Yes I know I haven’t posted a picture of the car up yet, so here it is.

Tomorrow we will have something special in mind and hope it comes out as well as it should do.

  1. Hello to all my friends at Mustang Maniac! Welcome to my amazing state, and even more incredible my town. I am fortunate to travel on Route 66 every day both to and from work on Watson Road near Crestwood. Better planning and I could have take you to lunch! Very soon you will be passing through Springfield. (Son Jon goes to college there.) On the way you will find an amazing rest stop featuring Route 66. Once in Springfield you must stop at the Steak N Shake. Thank you for enjoying Missouri!
