Gift the Arch & Riverboats for the Holidays
‘Tis the season for gift giving! While Santa is making his list and checking it twice, do the heavy lifting for him and get started on your holiday shopping. There are so many ways you can support St. Louis businesses, but did you know your holiday shopping can also support the 630-foot-tall symbol of St. Louis and the riverboats on the riverfront? Here are a few ways how:
Arch Gift Certificate
Skip the toys and give your family or friends a St. Louis experience to remember with a gift certificate to enjoy numerous Arch experiences: the Tram Ride to the Top of the Arch for views of St. Louis and the Mississippi River from 630 feet in the sky; the award-winning Documentary Movie “Monument to the Dream, which chronicles the construction of the Arch; and a cruise aboard the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch. Gift certificates are also good for shopping at the Riverboat Gift Shop (open March through November). To purchase Arch & Riverboat gift certificates, call 877-982-1410.
The Arch Store
The Arch Store is the Gateway Arch’s official museum store, located in the lower level of the Arch Visitor Center and operated by Jefferson National Parks Association. Open during Arch operating hours, The Arch Store specializes in St. Louis- and Arch-themed apparel, souvenirs, gifts, toys, games and much more! (The store even sells delicious, fresh fudge!) Proceeds from The Arch Store benefit educational programming at Gateway Arch National Park.
In addition to being sold in the store, many items and gifts are also available to purchase online at shop.jnpa.com. Here are a few suggestions for gifts:
