Located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, America’s Center features 502,000 square feet of prime exhibit space and is close to hotels, dining, attractions, shopping, and public transportation.
Steps from the convention center’s doors, visitors will find Gateway Arch National Park, a greenspace located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It’s home to the Gateway Arch – at 630 feet it’s the tallest man-made monument in the United States. Take a tram ride to the top.
