If you’re visiting from out of town and staying in a downtown hotel, you can walk to the Arch Grounds if you’re close enough. If that seems like too long of a walk, you can take the MetroLink from your nearest station to the Laclede’s Landing station, which is located within the Eads Bridge. The Arch Grounds are on one side of that station, while Laclede’s Landing is on the other. You can purchase a round-trip ticket to get you to the Arch and back. You can also drive through downtown St. Louis to a couple of St. Louis Arch Grounds parking lots and parking garages. You’ll have to pay for parking, but it’s worth it if you want to keep your vehicle nearby or plan to visit other St. Louis attractions after you’re done at the Arch. There are two outdoor parking lots next to the Laclede’s Landing MetroLink station. These lots are on the opposite side of the Eads Bridge from the Arch, so you have a short walk from the lot to the grounds.
Locals and visitors staying farther out in the St. Louis metropolitan area can use these methods to reach the Arch Grounds. However, they can also take advantage of the local highways. Highways 44 and 55 merge in the downtown area and offer two exits near the Arch Grounds at Walnut Street and Washington Avenue. Other highways, such as Highway 40, lead into the downtown area, but you’ll have to travel through downtown to reach the Arch Grounds from the exits. If you’re driving to the Arch, you can find directions to the St. Louis Arch on most travel apps, such as Waze and Google Maps.
