For those Yoga enthusiasts -- great opportunity to form bridge pose underneath the Arch and recreate your own arch underneath the replica! I did it, and it makes a great picture.

Gateway Arch Replica

The famed "Vandalia Gateway Arch." Yes, the proprietors of the Travelodge in Vandalia have saved travelers a 65-mile hassle by erecting a replica of the Saarinen eyesore. It's truly more remarkable than that Leaning Tower near Chicago or Eiffel Tower copy in Texas.
