This is an amazing engineering feat. The steamboat tour does a really good history of the building of the bridge, highlighting a lot of the engineering aspects. Overall a lot of fun and very interesting.

The Eads Bridge is something of a historical monument for St Louis. That being said, it's just a bridge. There is a pedestrian walkway which affords you many photo opportunities, or a way to walk in between casinos if that's your thing. Occasionally, the city...More
