We visited on a Thursday afternoon to have lunch and browse the shops as we have done several times in the past. This year things were different. One of the shops open at 10am some not till 10:30 or 11:00. It keeps you guessing. Many of the shops that use to be there are no longer there. The vintage feel... More

Charming cobble-stone streets, unique gift shops, with dining and desserts nestled along the Mississippi riverfront. If you have a European friend missing home, this visit might be just what they need. It is so relaxing to stroll up and down main street. There is so much history along the way too. The Lewis and Clark museum is right here too.

The old historic St. Charles district is an old riverfront town that has wonderful little shops, businesses, restaurants lined all along the cobblestone street that runs parallel to the river. It is a great place to stroll and shop and stop and eat. Night time offers a great variety of bars and restaurants with a great nightlife atmosphere. You'll find... More

Cute shops and nice restaurants. One end of main street is mainly dark bars that cater to the younger set, but the other end is geared more toward people looking for quaint shops and historic buildings. We had lunch at Lewis and Clark.

This historic area is full of unique shops and restaurants. The brick streets and old buildings gives the area an old time feeling and we were told that around XMAS times this is a must visit attraction. We spent about two hours shopping and had dinner in one the restaurants on Main St. and we did not come close to... More

The brick streets and old historic buildings contain excellent restaurants and novel shops. It is very pedestrian friendly because the rough streets force vehicles to drive quite slowly, i.e. less than 10 mph. It is great for browsing, shopping and dining.

christmas parades, and all the stores open on the weekends. A real treat for shoppers looking for unique gifts or just out to enjoy the season cheer.
