The park memorializes the city's role in westward expansion through the 630 foot Gateway Arch and underground Museum of Westward Expansion.

With remarkable low cost of living for all the comforts and attractions it affords, St. Louis has a small-town feel, but offers all the amenities you'd expect in a major metropolitan area, including top-notch health care and education resources. Cultural institutions abound in St. Louis in Forest Park alone, you'll find the Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum, Science Center and the Municipal Opera (and they are all FREE).
