When you visit the beautiful Saint Charles region, you'll find surprises at every street corner, down each country road and off its major highways. Saint Charles is known for its historic architecture, specialty stores and antiques, lovely parks, and various sports and recreation complexes. At night, enjoy its restaurants, the cinema, performances at local dinner theatres, a riverfront stroll or gambling at the Ameristar Casino. During the summer, see well-known rock, country and jazz stars at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, one of America's premier amphitheaters. Or travel a short distance to the rolling hills of the wine country road, the Missouri Weinstrasse, where you'll discover tranquil towns, an array of award-winning wines, special banquet menus, vineyard and cellar tours, and lodging and meeting places.
Just 25 minutes away is downtown St. Louis, the Arch, Riverfront and historic Laclede's Landing. At Forest Park, the site of the 1904 World's Fair, discover the world-renowned St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum, St. Louis Science Center, and newly-expanded History Museum. Cheer at the Edwards Jones Dome for Rams football or Busch Stadium for Cardinals baseball. Stroll the classic grounds of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Visit unique neighborhoods: Soulard's historic farmers' market, the Central West End's boutiques/antiques and the funky, fun Delmar Loop.
