Early explorers and pioneers made St. Charles their place of choice for shopping in the 19th century. Today, you can walk those same brick-lined streets, shop in the same buildings, but rather than pelts and barrels of nails, you will find unique specialty items, home accessories, artwork, and many other one-of-a-kind gifts.
Enjoy creative cuisine that includes American fare, French, Mexican, Italian, and Spanish influences.
When evening falls, take a stroll under the glow of antique gaslights or relax to the soothing sounds of horses' hooves clip cloping along while snuggling in a horse-drawn carriage.
For well over 200 years, visitors to St. Charles have been settling into comfortable accommodations. Our overnight guests have included explorers, pioneers, statesmen, and steamboat captains.
As evening descends on our Missouri River village, the essence of history and life in a simpler time envelops you. Come be our guest and make your own memories along Main Street.
