This Missouri River town, founded in 1769 by the French, is just 20 miles northwest of St Louis. The cobblestoned Main St anchors a well-preserved downtown with artisan shops, cafes and gourmet grocers. Ask at the visitor center about tours, which pass some rare French-colonial architecture in the Frenchtown neighborhood just north.
