Located just footsteps from where Lewis and Clark completed their journey along the Mississippi River, the 90-acre Jefferson National Expansion Memorial was designated as a national historic site in 1935. The national park encompasses the Gateway Arch and the surrounding grounds, the Old Courthouse and Luther Ely Square, all bearing unique pieces of history and culture. The St. Louis Riverfront offers other activities including the Gateway Arch Riverboat Cruises, helicopter tours, shopping and casual dining.
