Hey my loves! Traveling is something I’ve always loved doing and when I originally came up with the idea for the blog I wanted to include that part of my life. Unfortunately up until now I haven’t. I am still unsure of exactly how this will go but I’m going to just jump in and share a piece of my past weekend with you guys.
So, jamiedreamsbig travel edition first stop: St Louis.
Everyone needs a few car selfies. Right?
Now, I didn’t do a lot in St Louis because the purpose of my trip was really to surprise my sister for her 30th Birthday and she actually lives in Belleville, Illinois. My absolute favorite part of the day is what I’ll be sharing with and and it was… You guessed it!
The St Louis Arch!
It reaches 630 feet in the air!!
It amazing up close and it’s so high that it was impossible to capture the entire monument in one piece so closely.
I was was less than thrilled on the way up in a small tram that looks like the inside of a little spaceship. It took 4 nerve racking minutes to reach the top… I had to eat a snack to calm myself. Lol.
But when we did reach the top, IT. WAS. AMAZING!
There were small windows (16 on each side) that allow you to take a look at the city from a view you’d only otherwise be able to experience by helicopter.
Seeing Busch Stadium, the stadium the St Louis Cardinals play at, was incredible from that high up!
We all know that I’m a geek for anything Historical so I welcomed that aspect of this as well.
Apparently it was built as a Memorial for those who helped and aided with Westward Expansion because of that, there was also a Museum of Westward Expansion. It was full of facts on the expansion and it really covered a lot. We were able to see guns, wagons, tools, coins, and moving exhibits that talked even blinked! It was cool.
Yes, I had to get a selfie with the cow. I’m a Texan!
I hope you guys have enjoyed my first travel post. There will definitely be more and I promise they’ll only get better from here.
What’s your favorite thing about St Louis?
