International employers, innovative schools, beautiful parks, local and regional resources, and unique architecture have earned St. Charles its reputation as the Pride of the Fox!

Nestled along the Fox River, the City of St. Charles has been a premiere destination in the Chicago area for over 175 years.  With nearly 2,500 hotel rooms, it’s the ideal place for an overnight stay.  Visitors and residents alike enjoy dozens of events throughout the year, from Pride of the Fox Riverfest in the late spring to the nationally-renowned Scarecrow Festival in the fall.

Come see for yourself what the “Pride of the Fox” has to offer.  You are always welcome in St. Charles.
