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.

The people of St. Charles have labored lovingly to preserve and share its treasured river heritage which includes a vintage trolley that gives tours of the downtown area. It was in Saint Charles in 1804 that William Clark and Meriwether Lewis departed up the Missouri River seeking the route to the Pacific Ocean by order of president Thomas Jefferson.

A true destination for visitors – Saint Charles history comes alive to welcome visitors since 1769.
