My wife and I come here three to four times a year. We love the shops and selection of food choices. We look forward to our next visit.

Plenty of shops and boutiques to browse. A nice selection of restaurants, museums and of course the Missouri River and its surrounding parks. Beautiful area. Friendly people in the shops and the visitors' center.

The St. Charles District is a fun stroll and great for dining and shopping. It contains the first capital of Missouri a block off the Missouri River. The shops and restaurants are in early 19th century buildings. The south end of the street has loads of boutique gift shops with a wide variety of items:from one shop with a room... More

We traveled here over the 4th of July weekend, it was also my wife's birthday weekend. Had an amazing time, between the Riverfest festival, live music, food, drinks, history and shopping there was plenty to do. Would love to come back and continue exploring. The cobblestone streets are lined with great restaurants and shops, too many to accomplish in a... More

This is a great place to visit. The brick streets are very beautiful. The shops are great. Everyone should visit this area. Quite quaint. It is along the Missouri river. There are many things to do here.

Spent a great couple days over the 4th holiday in st. Charles. Fun shopping in the charming shops, lots of food and drinks along the river, good entertainment and fireworks. Stay at the country inn and suites so you can walk everywhere and don't have to worry about parking.

Between all the festivals and shops there is fun for everyone. But plan to do a lot of walking. During festivals its busy and parking fills up quick.

I loved the Historic District! I had such a good time walking around and taking photos. There is plenty of fun shopping, great eating and drinking, and opportunities to take in a taste of St. Charles along the river. I happened to visit the river during live music and food trucks. This was worth doing!

This is a very nice area to stroll and see the many nice stores and eat at very good restaurants. Its a shame so many shops close at 5 since the afternoons in summer can be quite warm. Many people could go into the shops before or after dining. We ate at Little Hills, Braddens and a little pub on... More
