This popular venue boasts a wealth of retail spaces for shopping and dining is abundant as well. In warmer weather, it's a very nice place to eat outdoors and shop while walking around in enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine in a restaurant sidewalk cafe.

While we frequent Main Street regularly, Christmas on Main is a must. Nothing like it anywhere. Great for kids of all ages - period Santas, Carolers, Fife and Drum

We attended Christmas Traditions at downtown mains street. It was fun talking to the characters and allowing them to provide their insights to the world that they are associated with.

Visiting St. Charles historic district provides quaint one of a kind shops and very friendly sales staff. There are many establishments that offer good food. One of our favorite places is Frankie Toccos. They have great pizza.

Nice historic Main Street district with many interesting restaurants and bars. But incredibly, smoking is still aloud everywhere in this county. If you can't stand cigarette smoke while you eat and drink, don't go here. Really disappointing.

This is the second time we have come to enjoy Christmas Eve. Love how the entire town celebrates an old fashioned Christmas! Period characters walk the town, music and a parade! Being the entire family.

Main Street St Charles is the place to be during the Christmas Holidays. Cobblestone streets, small shoppes, people dressed up in traditional clothing from the 1700 and 1800's. Roasting chestnuts, mulled wine, and an eclectic group of Santas from different cultures meeting and greeting people up and down the street. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from when you...

On Select nights (Check their web page for hours) they have a host of characters form Jack Frost to the Sugar Plum Fairy to historic Santas and other historic Christmas folks to Carolers to Chestnut Roasters (yes, the accent is real, they are from...
