The village is only about 5 minutes from the world-famous Gateway Arch of St. Louis. Sunset often provides picturesque views of the arch and St. Louis' skyline. Collinsville Road, once known as the National Road, runs the length of the village. Along this route there is an accumulation of vintage, in situ roadside Americana advertising signage that is unsurpassed in the area.
