Meeting friends 8/11-8/13 around St. Charles; suggestions??

Meeting friends from CA 8/11/08. They enjoy shopping and gambling; he is in a scooter, so they prefer things w/in walking distance. We are from IL and know nothing of the St. Charles area.

Recommendations on where to stay, within walking distance to shopping and gambling, outlet malls, antique stores, upscale shopping? Or should I be looking at Maryland Hts area??

Help please! Thanks,

Mary

Don't know if you're still even following this since it's been so long since you posted, but I'll reply anyway :-)

I grew up in the St. Charles area, and would strongly recommend staying on Main Street in St. Charles if you need to be w/in walking distance of stuff. There are several shops, restaurants, bars, etc. right there, as well as Ameristar Casino and Frontier Park. Plus a hospital, if anyone you're travelling with is as accident prone as our group always is! You can check out www.mainstreetstcharles.com for more info, although the site presents a somewhat limited view of what's available it's a good overview.
