    Welcome, Karen, to the City of the French King! The arch is a must see, inside and out, and nearby (easy walking distance) are the Old Cathedral, Eads Bridge (you can get good skyline photos from the sidewalk there) and the old US Courthouse.
    Forest Park is also a great place to wander ( htp://www.fores­tpark365.com ) - and the Missouri Botanical Garden. The City Museum is also downtown and will bring out your inner child (who may, however, throw a tantrum when you say it's time to leave).

    Your welcome Karen. I love the techniques you use, mind if I ask you what editing software you use?
