Saint Charles is a calm, beautiful and safe city. The schools are amazing. Kids get well educated. Teachers are amazing, they take good care of students. Saint Charles have an amazing river walk. Is beautiful for people that like to walk or bike-riders. The city has a little bit of everything; grocery stores, churches, shopping plazas, and restaurants. Is very convenient to have all of this in one city. If I could change something about Saint Charles would be property tax. I feel like the tax are a bit too high. I would definitely lower the tax if I could. This way it could be more affordable for other people.

Great city, lots to do for people of all ages and interests. Great shopping scene, nightlife, family activities, and outdoor opportunities.
The environment here is great. There is a lot to do in town, bars, restaurants, little shops. There is also a lot of different outdoor activities as well. They have a lot of public parks and being right near the river helps.
