This Riverside Missouri City Is Picture Perfect For A Day Trip

Missouri’s rivers brought many settlers to the area before the United Stated had even declared independence. These small settlements were started by traders who did much of their business with the native Americans who had lived on the banks of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers for centuries. St. Charles (located on the banks of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers) has continued to grow into Missouri’s ninth largest city while still embracing its historical past. This popular tourist attraction is well worth the trip because of the many activities, dining options, and unique places to shop. This riverside city is not only fun but it’s beautiful too. Plan your nest day trip to St. Charles for the perfect outing in Missouri.
