  • Love Main Street St. Charles! It has fabulous eating options, quaint boutique shops, and a beautiful park and river in the background to make it a very enjoyable way to spend the day. 
  • We visited the First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site, and then enjoyed Christmas Traditions, and ended with a great dinner at Lewis and Clark! The Carriage ride was so nice! 
  • Plenty of shops to visit. Now they even have a dike rental shop! Over a dozen restaurants - everything from pizza to finer dining.
