Old Town Saint Charles

I love all the unique shops and the plenty of food variety. A great place to join friends at a wine garden during the warmer evenings.

The variety of shops and restaurants in Old St Charles is great - I can shop for the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, etc because of this diversity - and if I need a break the restaurants are scattered sufficiently throughout the district - that I know I an find something to eat

Saint Louis' hidden "little brother" set on the banks of the Missouri River, about 40 miles directly West of downtown St. Louis, which sits on the bank of the Mississippi River. The basic boundaries of the Historic District are the Missouri River on the East, Highway 370 to the North, 1st Capital Drive to the West, and Highway 70 to... More

Couldn't ask for a better place for date night, pick one of the restaurants for dinner and then stroll into a bar for a few drinks, or the ice cream shop for dessert. If you have time setup a Horse carriage ride around main.

Wonderful walking, shopping and sightseeing any time of year. While there enjoy one of the many great restaurants like mother in laws. Frontier park stroll along the Big Mo can be fun too

Historic St. Charles is a quaint river town near St. Louis, MO. It is good for a day trip with plenty of offerings to keep you busy. There are fashion boutiques, antique stores, spice shops, craft stores and a fine array of restaurants and bars. The Katy Trail and Frontier Park are also close by, situated on the Missouri River....

Great place to walk, talk, window shop, eat, and relax. Cobblestone streets and unique quaint shops make the day special. There area is fairly large so you will not be disappointed or done in a hour like some old town areas. You could easily spend the whole day or just go for a short few hours. Multiple restaurants and eateries... More

One of the most charming historic areas we have ever visited. Lots of lovely shops in interesting buildings dating from 1790-1805, interesting restaurants with outdoor seating....all lit by gaslight streetlamps. Stay in one of the downtown hotels and walk to everything.

Many quaint shops with different themes one both sides of a many block area. Most shops require steps to get into. A lot of country and antique themes. Some closed when we visited on a Friday during the day.

Poor food. Small servings for the price. BBQ sauce to much vinegar. No bread or refills offered. 3 ribs were small and tough. Pulled pork good but not warm enough. Potato salad needs help. Beans good. Overpriced for what you get.
