Great Main Street with cute little shops and great owners. The history of the area is mind blowing. Even Lewis and Clark spent the night here.

My spouse and I have been to this area many times, during the Christmas season is a great time with locals dressed up in early American Christmas attire. singing and parades. St. Charles is a customer, or visitor friendly area, that is safe and entertaining for what I would recommend for middle aged visitors. Many shops on both sides of... More

Charming area of St. Charles, located along the Missouri river. B&B's, shops, restaurants along Main Street give this area a feeling what it was like many years ago.

I enjoy cooking and like... More

We really didn't know much about St Charles, but were in the area for a concert that was cancelled. We went downtown and loved the character of the buildings, all the historical signs that told many things about events and people there. There were flowers and landscaping everywhere, and it's right on the river. During the afternoon we parked off... More

Several pubs for drinks and pub grub. Restaurants are great with all kinds of choices. There are 2 ice cream shops, popcorn, cookie, candy, and a soda shop. Enjoyed... More

There is nothing I dislike about St Charles Historic District. The little cross stitch shop there is fantastic.

Walking Main St. Is easy with lots of shops to check out from stitchery to antiques to places to eat or have some ice cream. Several places specialize in wines and beers. There is Frontier park to walk and some night they have concerts. There is plenty to check out as you stroll with a casino down the street if... More

There is a small town, quaint feel to this area with big festivals and lots of shopping, nightlife, restaurants and beautiful walking trails. Around Christmas this place becomes a MUST!!! Christmas traditional Santas walk the streets, live reindeer, horse drawn carriage rides. Unique, fun, and a great weekend getaway!!!
