    Hi. Welcome to today’s tour, St. Louis: There’s More than Meets the Arch, presented by ListenUp Audio. Weʼre so glad youʼll be joining us today! Iʼm Amy and Iʼll be your guide. A few notes before we get started. This tour takes approximately 2 hours to complete, plus the time you spend at each stop.

    You can stop at any time and start at the same spot later. If youʼd like, you can put your phone in your pocket and just listen from here. Iʼll be giving you clear directions and the audio will automatically start when you get close to each point of interest. If a site is closed or your path is blocked, donʼt worry. Just go around it. The tour will pick up at the next location. And this is important: PLEASE make sure you stay aware of your surroundings at all times and obey all traffic signals. This tour is divided into two sections and will utilize the St. Louis MetroLink system. We will be using the Forest Park/DeBaliviere and St. Louis Union Station stops on the MetroLink. You only need to buy a 2.50 ticket, although we recommend considered and all day pass for 7.50 if you feel like continuing to explore after the tour ends. These passes can be bought at terminals near either Station.

    OK, I think we're ready to get started. Take a look around. You should be standing at 1904 Concourse Drive. You are? Then let's begin!

    Welcome to St. Louis! For over 200 years St. Louis has been a symbol of American ambition. The center point of America's westward expansion, St. Louis' position on the legendary Mississippi River made it one of the country’s most important ports. Railways offered exotic vacations to a city which grew larger than New Orleans faster than anyone could have imagined. It became the darling destination of America, along with the rest of the world.

    Everything changed with the invention of air travel. Outsourcing of local manufacturing jobs lead to a decline in population faster than almost any other American city after World War II. The city and its leaders realized that despite the fact that the city had stopped growing, it was still something very special. St. Louis reorganized itself not as a challenger to New York or Chicago, but as a special place to live. Indeed the infrastructure, history, and commitment to creative city planning has led to astounding revitalization which may eventually open even greater chapters in the story of this legendary city.
