Historic downtown St. Charles is very charming. Lots of shops, historic buildings and great eateries. St. Charles was the first capitol of Missouri.

This is a great place to spend a day, or a sunny afternoon. There are great little mom/pop shops. There are also some wonderful restaurants, with outside seating. Well worth a visit.

Great day trip. Whether you are walking along the River, visiting the many shops along the main street or sitting outdoors eating at one of the many great eateries, you will love historic St. Charles.

Too much of the areas closed way before their posted hours. Very disappointing. The shops that were open very interesting. The Main street bookstore was our favorite.

We went in the evenings and all the shops were closed. Strolling was just as nice. Find a place to park and walk; the roads are cobblestone and very tough to drive on.

Lots of interesting shops and places to relax and have a glass of wine or beer. We were traveling thru and needed a place to relax after an afternoon of driving. This was perfect.

we love Bradden's restaurant and Lewis and Clarks is always great too! The main street marketplace is a favorite to stop and shop, but they only take cash so bring some! They have spices and one of a kind nick/nacks for good prices.
