So great! Our navigation was incorrect. When heading toward St. Louis you exit the highway and turn right then left onto highway ZZ. Not too far down the road on the left side next to a little store. The rocker is hidden behind trees as you approach so watch for the store. Probably 2 miles or so off the highway. Great picture.
Okay! Wow! Elk, bison, raccoons, turkeys, geese, chipmunks, turtles....etc. It was absolutely amazing. Truly a hidden gem! A must see. We saw all of this from the car....but you can also get out if you want to.
Even if you don’t want to go up into the arch you need to go into the ticket/entrance building and watch the film about the arch. There is also a big museum downstairs that follows a timeline of the westward expansion. Extremely well done. Highly recommend. Plus, bonus a great place to eat and reasonably priced. Wonderful experience. You can’t appreciate the arch until you understand what it took to build it.
So much bigger in person. Super great! Well worth it. Easy to find. Right on the main road.
Fun picture. Worth it and very easy to find.
This was such a fun spot. We passed it the first time because the trees do hide a small part of it. However, if your alert it is right there along the highway so keep your eyes peeled and you will see it. Well worth it.
Wow! A little gem. Our navigation stopped us about a quarter mile short so be sure to keep going until you see the water or at least hear it.
October 2018. It’s a beautiful building. However, there is a sign posted stating that it is only open on the weekends and it’s $5 per person to walk the grounds. Directly across the street is a small park with a stream. It’s very pretty.
We were heading East and took exit 17 on highway 70. We turned left and followed the road until we saw the sign indicating the “Van Gogh painting” is to the right. So we turned right and followed the road a short distance and there it was on the left side of the road. You can’t miss it. It really is big. So glad we stopped by to see it.
We were heading east and took exit 206. We turned right and stayed on that road until the first stop sign then we turned right again. The Czech egg is on the left side of the road between the big red barn and the large brick building. You can’t miss it. It also has a few signs that give some details about the egg. So glad we stopped to see it.
