It's a great downtown area. Lots of quaint shops and restaurants. Easy parking and a huge park along the river too. Tons of charm, and I enjoyed seeing the older buildings and brick streets.

I was asked to come back in December when we visited in July. The locals explained the Christmas Traditions as magical and truly it is!! Brought along my parents as they love Christmas, we all had a wonderful time.

Great all year but is especially wonderful during their Christmas Traditions Festival. I truly believe it is the best Christmas Festival in St. Louis.

Each store has their own hours. Most closes at 5:00pm but there are a few that wants the most out of the day and closes at 7:00pm. And of course the mini-brewery is later.

Sorry. I do not know which bar that could be. Maybe call the Chamber of Commerce (636-946-0633) or the Visitors Bureau (800-366-2427)
