St. Charles

Once named the "Williamsburg of the West" by Southern Living Magazine, St. Charles' Main Street region is Missouri's first and largest historic district. Tour the First State Capitol Historic Site or stroll the brick paved streets, taking in more than 125 unique shops and restaurants. Located along the banks of the Missouri River, St. Charles has been welcoming visitors since 1769. Today, the city is much as it was and continues to welcome folks who enjoy experiencing the sights and sounds of early America.
