We finished up September in St. Louis.
Union Station at one time was the busiest rail station in the US. All rail traffic had to go through St. Louis, because it was one of the easiest places to cross the Mississippi river. Today the old station is a hotel. They have kept a lot of the original structure, and if you like history it’s a fun place to visit.
It was kinda fun realizing a few weeks ago we were at the very beginning of the river we are next to (Mississippi River).
I learned the hard way that you should never park in the RV parking at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. A local told me that everyday tourists vehicles are broken into. The local person said, they are well organized watching tourists and police.
We weren’t the only one broken into. If you want to see the Arch take a cab, or walk.
