Historic Saint Charles is full of history. It was the first state capitol of Missouri and has lots of old building with beautiful architecure. The road is cobble stone and you can even get a horse and buggy ride in the evenings and on weekends. Along Main street you will find boutiques, restaurants, wineries and historical landmarks. Main street is one block off of the Missouri river and landmarks from Louis and Clark. Spending a day in historic Saint Charles would be filled with breathtaking views and lots to do. Frontier park in on the Missouri river and there are often festivals going on there as well as the 4th of July fireworks which are spectacular!
