The arch is arguably the most popular symbol of not only St. Louis, but of America's westward expansion as well.

The best time to visit is before 10am when it is very seldom crowded.

2. Anheuser-Busch Brewery

A trip to St. Louis without a visit to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery is simply sacrilege. St. Louis has played home to America's most renowned beer maker since its conception in 1852. Now with 12 breweries nationwide, Anheuser-Busch offers tours of its flagship brewery for free. Guests over 21 years of age can sample products in the Hospitality Room.
