My husband and I absolutely loved visiting the historic district of St. Charles! On a beautiful day, this is the perfect place to stroll the main street, shop at local boutiques, and taste the local eateries. Our favourite place was this store that sold HUNDREDS (if not thousands) of different types of spices and sauces: practically any spice rub, hot... More

Really enjoyed walking downtown. Shopping was wonderful. Great variety and excellent quality of shoppes. The history of the area was also very enjoyable to check out.

We visited on a Saturday evening. Be advised that shops close up starting around 5:00. Many shops were having 'going out of business sales' which was sad to see. The area is many blocks long with lots of choices for eating with fantastic patios. A great place to visit.

I loved everything about St. Charles HIstoric District. It was a very quaint. The shopping in the area was fantastic. There are many small boutiques in old historic buildings. I would have stayed there longer if I could have!

My husband and I decided to visit St. Charles after a medical trip to St. Louis. We started on one end of Main Street and walked all 10 blocks. It was very enjoyable. There seemed to be some stores that had closed but did not distract from the visit. We chose to walk back to our car along the Missouri... More

We felt welcome everywhere even in the off-season. A very interesting area with plenty to explore. When passers-by greet you with a smile and "hello" you know they are enjoying the area too.

I was totally blown away by the St. Charles Historic District. It is nestled next to the Missouri River, but I felt like I was somewhere on the eastern coast. Fabulous shopping with unique specialty shops. The buildings themselves are turn of the century, and I was surrounded by a feeling of past adventurers who had come years before me.... More

Practically every weekend of the year there is something to celebrate on Main Street. It began unassumingly as a good place to stroll and visit shops of all sorts. It has grown to become one of the Midwest's most desired locations for it's friendliness, diversity of interests, Frontier Park, Festival of the Little Hills, Oktoberfest and Christmas Traditions Festival held...

This is a great place to spend an evening. The old capital building and Lewis and Clark history of the area give you a lot to ponder about the city's history. The shops and restaurants are also fun to check out.
