Almost there to Summer!

The weather keeps reminding us that we are getting closer to summer! 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!

Live Music Galore!

Speaking of patios and restaurants, there's so many live music performances to find both indoors and outdoors! Check out our list here for all the live music performances happening around town this week. If you want to find a cool drink or some hot apps to go along with the music, check out our Happy Hour Hub to find happy hour deals around town!

Take a Tour at Your Pace

With the weather so nice, it's the perfect time to take a tour and walk outdoors! 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.
