Like stepping back in time! Beautiful architecture, brick streets and sidewalks, and tons of history! Cute shops and cafes. There is also a large park nearby dedicated to Lewis and Clark. We only had a day in St. Charles but I wish we'd had more time. I hope to return someday!

A lot of small shops to visit and old cobblestone streets, also some nice restaurants to eat at. This area is as neat as any historic area out east

I love this town! I have visited here 3 times and absolutely love it. You actually get to see where Lewis and Clark started their historical journey. You feel as if you have stepped back in time.

Main Street has buildings from the late 1700s to the mid 1800s and all have been wonderfully restored. There are boutique shops, cafes, coffee shops, and a wonderful indy bookstore. You can enjoy wandering this area all day and even stay at one of the local B&B's. So much fun!

Amazing architecture. It blows my mind things can withstand the time. Lewis and Clark stopped here! Crazy to think. We enjoyed walking and looking. So many small shops, bars, wineries, food, etc.

We had a wonderful time walking the brick streets of St. Charles! The shops are all quaint and friendly and each one offers a unique product. The prices are as high as you would expect them to be in a boutique-type setting, but the scenery and friendly faces make up for it!

There is a great variety of shops, places of interest, and restaurants. If you stop in on the weekends, everything closes at five. Really enjoyed walking the streets and enjoying the older architecture. Wished we would have arrived earlier in the day.

This is a very cute historic area with lots of unique shops along the quaint road. We had a delicious lunch at Lewis & Clark Café & amazing cookies at Grandma's Cookies (Wish I would have bought a dozen!!) There are a couple nice parks with benches & shade for a rest. The Riverfront is also nice.

Although it was over 98 degrees, we strolled the sidewalks of this quaint historical town. The buildings were occupies by unique shops but the strict and historical feel remained. Shop owners were welcoming. The only negative was the vast number of people kids, teens and older adults playing Pokemon. It was sad, they were to busy looking for things to... More
