What's Up Downtown 04-14-2021

Spend your Spring in St. Charles! View this email in your browser

Spring is here and the weather keeps getting better and better! Why not enjoy the beautiful outdoors and go for a walk downtown, where you can explore our shops, restaurants and more! Especially for the restaurants, you can enjoy dining outdoors on many patios, including the ones in the First Street Plaza, which has expanded due to a portion of First Street being closed!

Spring is also the perfect time to partake in some walking and tours! Check out the St. Charles Brew Tour, a self-guided tour you can take of six breweries in St. Charles. Another great tour is the downtown St. Charles Historic Walking Tour, where you can take a self-guided walk through St. Charles history. Stop up at the St. Charles History Museum for more information or for fun St. Charles gifts and more in the Curious Fox Gift Shop.
