The Greater St. Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is the area's official Destination Marketing Organization. Our goal is to promote the hospitality industry and encourage economic growth by serving leisure tourists and meeting planners.

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.

Thousands passed through on their journeys westward, replenishing supplies before departing into new territory. Saint Charles is a source of historical encounter: the Lewis and Clark Rendezvous, Missouri's First State Capitol, origin of the Boone's Lick Trail and home to Daniel Boone.

The people of St. Charles have labored lovingly to preserve and share its treasured river heritage. As destination for almost one million visitors each year Saint Charles history comes alive to welcome you.

You'll find St. Charles offers first rate hotels & accommodations, over 150 restaurants to choose from, and so many things to do, you may have to come back to try everything.

Experience the charm and beauty of a city that has been welcoming visitors since 1769.
