Gear Up for Christmas Traditions®

Just west of St. Louis you'll find St. Charles, a river city with a unique historical perspective, beautiful sites, friendly people and a pace just a little slower than that of the big city. Founded as Les Petites Cotes (The Little Hills) by French Canadian fur trader Louis Blanchette, Saint Charles, MO grew into a thriving riverfront trading center for a young America. Make memories in the midst of our illustrious history. Saint Charles. A little mysterious - a lot of fun.
