St. Louis is a lovely riverside city located in the state of Missouri in the USA. The city was founded in 1763 when French explorer Pierre Laclede established a fort on the banks of the Mississippi River.
The original settlement grew into one of mid-western America's largest cities, but the original site of its foundation, known as "Laclede's Landing," is to this day a popular reminder of St. Louis' storied past. Present day "Laclede's Landing" retains much of its historic charm, as cobblestone streets and cast-iron façade buildings remain, but a number of delicious restaurants and exciting clubs have taken root in the former industrial space. "Laclede's Landing," and the rest of historic St. Louis, is full of unique spots to explore. Auto Europe can meet all of your transportation needs during your time in St. Louis.

One of St. Louis' most beautiful and recognizable landmarks is the famous Gateway Arch. A part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, the monument marks the starting point of the expedition to the Pacific Ocean by American explorers Lewis and Clark. St. Louis was thereafter known as "The Gateway to the West," and the arch was completed in 1965 to commemorate the event.
A marvel of architectural engineering, the Gateway Arch stands 192 metres tall and is also 192 metres wide at its base. A sophisticated tram system can carry visitors from either end of the arch to an observation deck in its keystone section.
