We spent the day in the historic district of St Charles. We love just walking down the street and window shop and having lunch. The old spice shop is a fun store. We like Lewis and Clark restaurant.

There are plenty of stores with a variety of items. Store owners were friendly. Several blocks of walking but there are restaurants you can stop at to rest and get something to eat. There are plenty of places to sit along the way
