Cute little cobblestone Main Street with plenty of quirky shops and restaurants...it had an old America type feel to it. Nice place to walk and wander for an hour or two.

A very nice street with many shops, much larger than expected. This provides a nice day trip from St Louis, the old homes and gift shops make for a good day out. Plan on a nice lunch or dinner, several choices.

Plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. Too cold to spend much time exploring. We will go back in the summer!

I am from STC, so I am biased. If you have not been, give it a try. The streets are brick, parking is not always easy, and some of the sidewalks are brick. Wear smart shoes.

This is a cute little shopping district. Very quaint and quiet! It has a variety of little stores and a couple of food places. Could spend an afternoon or morning here and leave very relaxed!

Great little shops - lots of variety. They close a little early on Saturday - between 4 and 6pm. We were able to visit several quaint shops.

If your "cup of tea" is coffee, try Picasso's at Jefferson and Main St. You'll be greeted by friendly, excellently trained staff. The view of the lazy Missouri River from the huge plate glass window will help your cares melt away as you sip your jolt of java. Then there are the eclectic shops and restaurants all along Main Street... More

Very nice variety of shops. Lots of things to do in the area. A beautiful riverside park with walking/bicycle trails. Be careful driving on the brick streets. They are very uneven and can throw you around in the car.
