Taking the tour bus trolley looking at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

The "Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis" or "Saint Louis Cathedral" or the "New Cathedral".  It was constructed in the early 20th century in the Central West End of the city to replace the Church of St. Louis IX, King of France.

Looking out front of the trolley at County Hall and the Arch.

 Well the trolley tour bus brought me back to the river front.  Now it is time to walk to the President's Casino for the buffet.  I noticed they have horse carriage tour operators here at the river front.

 One more horse carriage going by as I am walking north to the President's Casino.

Looking at a very long barge go by in front of the Queen's Casino.

This long barge has a puller and a pusher tug, too long to get in one camera shot.

Almost at the "President's Casino"., the boat "Admiral".

Arriving near these "President's Casino" gangway entrance ramps, about to enter the casino boat.  I had the supper buffet.  The food was good, but the service was slow getting my Diet Pepsi soda refills.  I won $8 slot jackpot which was reinvested without a "ROI", return on investment.

  The next day I walked to the La Cledes landing Metro stop.  I took the train all the way west to end at Lambert Field Airport.

A few pictures at the Laclede's Landing Metro Station, while waiting for the train to arrive.

More Lacledes landing station signs.

Looking out of Lacledes Landing metro stop.

  The west bound metro train is arriving.  I had purchased a fare day pass.  I could not understand their system, since they are no turn styles, or requests to see the fare pass.  I can only assume it is some sort of honor system, or they perform random fare pass checks, with severe penalties for the non-payers.  Or some sort of free zones like Seattle, Washington.

Going by the Savvis Center, now the "Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue in the heart of downtown St. Louis.  Where they play hockey and have many concerts and events. Web Site

 Nice relatively modern air conditioned cars.
