Historic architecture, South Main Street shopping, and local wineries

Located just 30 minutes to the west of St. Louis and nestled alongside the Missouri River is charming St. Charles. The state’s first capital, St. Charles might be most well-known for its historic South Main Street, lined with quaint, historic buildings and filled with one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and cafes. Take a leisurely stroll through the downtown area to window shop, have a coffee, or appreciate the architecture. From St. Charles, head to the rolling hills of Missouri Wine Country where you’ll be able to appreciate a slower pace of life. Relax with a great local wine or explore some of the towns in the area. In the summer months, many of the wineries even feature live music on the weekends.
