The name ‘Union Station’ is rather misleading. It is actually a ‘Terminal’, not a ‘Station’. Tracks stub into a terminal, requiring trains to exit via the way they entered. This is the case at Union Station St Louis. A station has tracks that run through the depot, entering from one direction and passing on through. By the way. The same goes for Grand Central Station in New York. It too is a ‘terminal’.
One of the most spectacular St. Louis Events is the annual Fair Saint Louis. This year kicks off July 4th, 2013 with the 2nd Annual Freedom 4 Miler & one mile Family Fun Run followed the Veiled Prophet Parade, air shows, headlining acts and more! The Fair continues through the weekend with air shows, headlining acts and entertainment for all ages on July 5th and 6th.
The most attended attraction in Forest Park is the world renowned St. Louis Zoo. Open since 1910, 2012 saw approximately 2.9 million visitors, enjoying, free of charge, the zoo’s claim of some 18,000 living creatures within its walls.
The Gateway Arch is easily the most recognizable St. Louis Attraction. The 630-foot tall monument stands as a tribute to President Thomas Jefferson and his vision of a continental United States. Take a tram ride to the top for a bird’s-eye view of the Mississippi River or watch “Monument to the Dream,” a documentary that tells the story of the Arch from concept through construction. Then visit the Museum of Westward Expansion which showcases a decade-by-decade look at the move west along with a Lewis & Clark trail photographic mural. Read more
