The Gateway to the West

Built as a memorial to Thomas Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase, which made westward expansion possible, the Gateway Arch is St. Louis' most visible symbol. Yet the city lays claim to much more, including a vibrant riverfront and a number of interesting museums, such as the City Museum.

Fenway Park
Fenway Park isn’t known as one of America's most beloved ballparks for nothing. As seen in this picture, the famous "Green Monster" has lined the left field wall of Fenway Park since the stadium’s opening in 1912. Home to the Boston Red Sox, Fenway is one of the few classic ballparks left today, and is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium still in use.
