The first in my long list of goodbyes to St. Louis was visiting the Gateway Arch. Or, more specifically, I wanted a picture with the arch with people I like. So, thanks for obliging my bucketlist request and posing with the arch with me, guys! Hehe…
Didn’t know about this city park in front of the capitol building, but it was a pretty neat place to take pictures.
In our quest for water, we ventured to the capitol building. Only to find that government buildings close after 5 pm on weekdays…rats.
Yes, we did make it to the arch. Eventually.
Unfortunately, I think the museum underneath the arch (yes, you read that correctly) was closed. The park surrounding the area was nice, though, to just chill in and take hologram cat pictures…you’ll see.
So I actually got to cross 2 items off my bucketlist that day, as I also went to a Cardinals baseball game for the first time! FYI, the arch and Busch stadium (where the Cardinals play) are both in downtown and within walking distance of each other.
In the end, the Cubs won (merp) 6-5, but it was still a good, exciting game – during the parts when I was paying attention, anyway. I heard that these games aren’t usually so high-scoring, so it seems that I came for a good one after all. Not bad for my first time!
Have you ever visited St. Louis? What were your to-see bucketlist items?
Thanks for reading!
