This is such a great place to visit. Like a little world in its own. Great shops for everyone. We ate at Tony's and had the buffet. It was spectacular. There are ice cream places, a fudge factory, history, shopping, antiques...we were only there a few hours but it's the best time I've had in a long time. And we... More

Lots of different stores with lots of choices you will not find anywhere else. Everything closes early or is not open on Sundays and Mondays but all in all a good place to shop.

We spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon in Downtown Historic St. Charles, MO. Visited several shops and had lunch at Braddens located at 515 South Main Street. While we were there it was Lewis and Clark Day lots of period costumes and activities. If you want to spent a fun day with friendly folks give them a try.

This cozy street next to the Missouri river displays several blocks of beautiful facades built with traditional Spanish window styles and French influence. You can have a beautiful afternoon there and eat something at the numerous restaurants and bars, also several shops are around to purchase all kinds of souvenirs.

Everything a combo of delicious flavors, lots of outdoor seating, cool to look at the cobblestone Main Street and early 1800's architecture in the area. Nice experience.

Magpie's is a wonderful restaurant and all the antique stores are so fun to visit! I would recommend starting at one end of Main street and walking all the way to the other, you're able to get a full view of how lovely each historical building really is.

During time away from the genealogy conference, I walked to the historic district. On the last day, there was a Lewis and Clark encampment near the Missouri River. Had fun chatting with some of the participants. Saw the recreation of the first church and many other interesting sights. Enjoyed visiting some of the shops on Main Street.

If you're in the area pleas visit historic St. Charles. The quaint shops are wonderful. All summer there are special festivals and exhibits. We have been a few times while visiting family and it never disappoints. Especially check out Aprils. It is a rather new shop with very special items. Prepare to take at least two passes the to make... More
