Things to Do in St. Charles

You’ll find surprises at every corner, down each country road, and off of each major highway that comes through St. Charles. If you can think of it, St. Charles has it. Whether your interests lie in art, entertainment, outdoor activities, shopping, or history, St. Charles has you covered.

Take a stroll along Historic Main Street where you’ll find charming shops full of stylish clothing, flavorful spices, unique handmade art, and more. Right nearby is Frenchtown, an antique lover’s haven. Numerous antique stores dot the neighborhood where hidden treasures await discovery.

While you’re at it, indulge your sweet tooth at one of the coffee shops, bakeries, and ice cream shops in town. Here for lunch or dinner? St. Charles has several dining options to satisfy your cravings. For a serene meal, head out to Historic Missouri Wine Country and enjoy a glass of award-winning wine with picturesque countryside views.

Discover St. Charles’ arts and entertainment scene. Stop at the Foundry Art Centre to admire the latest art exhibition on display, meet the resident artists, and immerse yourself in the creative process by signing up for a class. Or, catch a show at Lindenwood University’s J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts or at the Family Arena.

No one likes to be stuck inside on a perfect sunny day. Luckily for nature enthusiasts, the 240-mile-long Katy Trail runs through St. Charles and out to Historic Missouri Wine Country. The trail provides excellent hiking, biking, and birding adventures. You’ll notice that the trail runs along the Missouri River in St. Charles, which not only makes for a pretty picture, it’s also a great place to fish.

While by the river, you may see the Lewis & Clark and the Daniel Boone statue. These adventurers played a large part in St. Charles’ rich history that dates back to when it was a fur trading town in the 1700s. Learn more on the Hit the Bricks historical tour on Main Street, a tour of the First Missouri State Capitol, or by visiting one of the many museums in town.

Plan your trip around one of the many festivals in St. Charles. From Oktoberfest to Festival of the Little Hills, Legends & Lanterns® and Saint Charles Christmas Traditions®, and more, there is always something going on. You don’t want to miss out on it!

Make memories any way you like in St. Charles. Whether you need something to do on a rainy day, R&R time at a winery, or some retail therapy, St. Charles has it all. All St. Charles needs is you!

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, along the Nationally Registered Historic District, and shop in those same buildings.
