Whether you've traveled along Rt. 66 yourself, or have just heard stories and watched television shows, they're sure to add some history and American culture to your collection.
This Missouri Gateway Arch release is the second in a series of eight. Subsequent releases will represent stops along the famous highway, known as Main Street of America.

The Gateway Arch is an immediately recognizable symbol of the state of Missouri and the city of St. Louis. Standing tall at 630 feet high above the Mississippi River, it is the world’s tallest arch and the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere. For years, travelers of Route 66 were able to gaze out at the Arch and marvel in its mid-century modern design. Today, visitors of the Arch are able to take tram rides to the top, where they are able to look out at the incredible views of the Mississippi River and both Missouri and Illinois.
