"Main Street" is a beautiful authentic river front town. Most of the buildings are brick with varying architectural styles. The street itself is brick. Behind the street of buildings is a nice riverfront park along side the Missouri River. Currently Main Street is a combination of restaurants, bars, various kinds of shops including antique shops, and some offices. There are... More

With plenty of charming shops and eateries located along a red brick road, St.Charles has something for everyone. The architecture is an interesting draw and you can stroll along the river as well.

The St. Charles Historic is area is delightful. There's a great mix of restaurants and unique shops. Many of the shops have plaques that give historic information regarding the original use of the building. The streets are lined with cobblestones. There is a nice park located behind the shops along the Missouri River. A fun and delightful area.

A delightful mix of things to see and eat and buy. The river is the next block over so you could walk along the river too. Everyone was happy and nice and it was a great time.

We came with friends who live in the area. It is a great place to wander in and out of the shops along Main Street. There are several little outdoor bistro/cafes which serve full meals including bar liquor. Wonderful for people watching. We came this day for the Festival of the Little Hills. There were hundreds of vendors lining several... More

It has been awhile since I have been back to St. Charles but it has not lost its charm. I love all how the old character has been preserved in all buildings and road/walk ways. Store front after store front begs you to come in to view and buy its treasures. You will not be disappointed by spending an afternoon... More
