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

The St Charles Historic District offers a wide variety of restaurant- some gluten free along with unique shopping. They have plenty of free parking available. A nice way to spend the afternoon and get a good lunch.

Went to historic Main Street in St Charle last night for date night. It's great for people watching, good food, lots of options for drinks, etc. Parking is always an issue, but I love how many outdoor patio options there are along Main Street, especially on days with good weather.

It you want to go back in time , for Christmas this is the place to go. The cobble stone streets add to the atmosphere. Story book Christmas characters come to life. Around 50 of them go up and down the street. It's so wonderful. The kids and adults can collect baseball size cards of the characters. That is lots... More

This is a very interesting attraction. My wife and I really enjoyed reading the placards on all of the buildings. Outstanding historical value. I am sure we will return to visit more of the many shops that occupy the district.

Main Street St. Charles is a pretty historic town along the Missouri River. Cute shops and restaurants along with cobblestone streets and gas lamps. Worth a visit for sure.

This place has just about everything: Katy Trail, big ole river, lots of quirky shops and restaurants. There are all types of restaurants and local brew pubs to choose from. Even with construction along freeway it still easy to access.
