What a beautiful place to visit on a fall day. Lots of different shops and places to eat. The historic homes are so interesting. Don't miss this place

My husband and I decided to visit St. Charles after a medical trip to St. Louis. We started on one end of Main Street and walked all 10 blocks. It was very enjoyable. There seemed to be some stores that had closed but did not distract from the visit. We chose to walk back to our car along the Missouri... More

We felt welcome everywhere even in the off-season. A very interesting area with plenty to explore. When passers-by greet you with a smile and "hello" you know they are enjoying the area too.

I was totally blown away by the St. Charles Historic District. It is nestled next to the Missouri River, but I felt like I was somewhere on the eastern coast. Fabulous shopping with unique specialty shops. The buildings themselves are turn of the century, and I was surrounded by a feeling of past adventurers who had come years before me.... More

Practically every weekend of the year there is something to celebrate on Main Street. It began unassumingly as a good place to stroll and visit shops of all sorts. It has grown to become one of the Midwest's most desired locations for it's friendliness, diversity of interests, Frontier Park, Festival of the Little Hills, Oktoberfest and Christmas Traditions Festival held...

This is a great place to spend an evening. The old capital building and Lewis and Clark history of the area give you a lot to ponder about the city's history. The shops and restaurants are also fun to check out.

After a night of gambling at Ameristar, went down to the historic district. Had always heard how beautiful and historic it was. Was surprised at how long the main strip of shops was - thought is would be shorter. Tons of shops, boutiques etc. old buildings and cobblestone streets brought you back to a simpler time and place. Lots of... More

I like to visit every time I'm in the area. It's a step out of the usual hustle bustle, instantly relaxing. It sits along the riverbank with a beautiful park. There are quaint shops & boutiques as well as a variety of dining options.

Lots of fun walking down this Historic District. Sadly a lot of the shops were closed on Monday but we found a few unique places. April's had lovely decor and the spice shop at the other end was small but incrediable. Looking forward to our next trip.

This is a great place to just take a stroll with the kids and stop to get a hand dipped ice cream or something to eat. One of my favorite places to eat is the Trailhead Brewery. This is also a must visit during the holidays. There is fun for all ages with hot chocolate on the streets and roasted... More
