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 in the riverboat casino. During the summer, see well-known rock, country and jazz stars at UMB Bank Pavilion, 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.
