I was surprised with the amount of history steeped into this sleepy little downtown area. It's a single street lined with quaint buildings dating back 200 years or more. Parking was ample.

Very quaint Main Street. Lots of history. BE SURE to listen to the audio tour via cell phone. So much info as you walk the street. Lots of great photo ops. Eat lunch at one of the restaurants and it takes you back in time...

Very diverse historic district, with a city park along the Missouri River. Parking can get tight on Fri and Sat nights. Many outdoor patios, weather permitting. Good food and drink specials too, especially weekday lunchtime. Will go back when in town.....

Main Street St. Charles is chock full of interesting shops and unique restaurants. For lunch try Magpie's or Bradden's. If pizza is your thing you MUST try Talanya's on north Main, you WON'T be disappointed!
