Why anyone would review this is beyond me. We're not St. Louis. Drive under it and get on with your day.

This highly-recognisable Modesto landmark is a quick must-see for visitors to the city who want to learn a little about its history. It is easy to get to by car. One can easily pose for photos under the arch.

It spans the street and and welcomes us home. Not the greatest part of town now but in the day it was a big deal.

It's a landmark for the city of Modesto and we locals love it. However, stay in your car with the door locked, the area is now a terrible skidrow.

This should not be listed as an attraction or a place. Booooring. Just find the downtown and be happy there.

I love it its beautiful. It brings life to Modesto especially when its dark outside and the arch is lit. Up i just love it pretty cool beautiful way to welcome visitors and welcome people back home.
