Every year millions of visitors head for the Arch with one goal in mind: a journey to the top. This is where you'll get a stunning glimpse of the St. Louis region from a dizzying height of 630 feet. But how do you get to the top? You take a tram ride from the south or north leg of the Arch.
On your way to the top using the south leg, you'll return to an era in the 1800s when the St. Louis riverfront was bustling with steamboats, fur traders, and merchants. On your way to the top using the north leg, you'll be transported back to 1965 when construction workers wedged the last triangular Arch section into place.
