“The Coolest Historic Town in the Nation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Everything!! St. Charles has so many good restaurants and shops, with new ones being added all the time. It has also become a mecca for artists and art lovers, with new galleries and coffee shops springing up one after another. There is something for everyone in this town- all ages too. From the art Foundry at the farthest north end of town, to the Trailhead Brewery at the other end, one can find a plethora of activities, festivals, eating establishments, bars, coffee shops, art galleries, ice cream shops and a new charming and adorable gelato cafe and art gallery, Studio Gallo blu, near the great Lewis and Clark Restaurant.

There are antique shops and home decor shops galore, my favorite being Toodaloo, (For a good buy). There is Magpie's Restaurant, with it's fabulous home cooking and outdoor garden seating in the warm weather- The Vine, an elegant and affordable top notch restaurant with amazing food and fabulous wine, (my favorite) - and so many more!

The town is resplendent with history, the Lewis and Clark expedition embarked from this town! The cobblestone streets emanate with the footsteps of famous people from the past- visions of Mark Twain waft across the Missouri River and into ones senses. This historic town is a must stop on anyone's travels through the midwest!
