You should spend some time in this little district as it is a snapshot of the past with charming stores and excellent restaurants. It was pouring rain when we were here. Go on a sunny day!

A little or more for everyone. History, crafts, wine tasting and good restaurants. Plan to spend the better part of the day and be prepared to walk. Narrow cobblestone streets are not the best for parking, some off street parking on the banks of the Missouri. Check out St. Charles Art Association building. Artists studios, art exhibits and sales, all... More

My daughter and I ventured on this town on a weekday afternoon and were very pleased. The Main Street is right off the banks of the Missouri River...Frontier Park. The street itself is home to many quaint shops and restaurants and old buildings dating from the mid to early 1800s. On Saturdays from May to the end of October there... More

this place is great at Christmas time! The lights and decorations are amazing and the actors that are down there dressed up as Santas and winter time characters are delightful. They never break character, even when talking to each other. It is definately an amazing time for the whole family....Crowded but well worth the time to see and meet them... More

Lucked into a visit there in Mid-July, when my friend and her kids wanted to do 'something else' after we'd hit Grant's Farm. WOW....what a long way it's come since the first restorations I saw in the late seventies and early eighties. Whereas my mom and I found a few little shops and cafes back in about '83 on a... More

Mostly original buildings. Plenty of free street parking. Good look at Missouri history. Lewis and Clark exhibit nearby is very informative. Very close to all hotels. Short drive into St. Louis.

This Quaint River City is a great place to bring family that is interested in History. There are many Historical Reenactments such as the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Festivals take place throughout the year also. Great craft shops and antiques to see as well. Located just a block from the Missouri River where it flows North instead of South !... More

I love this place so much that my husband takes me there every year! It is especially beautiful after Thanksgiving, when they roll out the Christmas decorations! The shopping is great but just being in the atmosphere is terrific, really puts you in the Christmas spirit.
