You'll have the "time" of your life in the past and present of Saint Charles, where history comes alive every day, where you'll experience firsthand more than 200 years of American pioneer and river life as you've never seen it before. As you read about our highlights, you'll learn why visitors and locals know that Saint Charles is simply extraordinary. Its residences, restaurants and shops sparkle with the character and charm of a small Midwestern Williamsburg, yet its meeting facilities and convention amenities are state-of-the-art. The brick streets and authentic buildings of the 200-year old Historic Districts of Main Street and Frenchtown contrast with a state-of-the-art St. Charles Convention Center with 154,000 sq. ft. filled with upscale amenities, and a nearby Rec-Plex where sports is king.
What other convention city can offer you two Nationally-Registered Historic Districts, an award-winning wine region and its very own saint? Where else do the nation's longest bike/hike trail, more than a dozen well-equipped parks and great golf courses flourish? What other place combines 19th-Century shops, restaurants and antiques with outstanding convention services and moderate costs for travel, lodging, dining and recreation? The staff of the Greater Saint Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau offers personalized assistance to help you customize the Saint Charles experience for your unique meeting and needs. The past is our present to you and so is our service. This just may be your time to meet Saint Charles.
