    Enjoy a day in Historic St. Charles, MO. We start our day with our step-on guide, in period dress, for a historical tour of St. Charles. You will see Missouri’s First State Capitol, the Foundry Art Centre, the beginning of the Boone’s Lick Trail, and many historic buildings dating from the 1790’s to the early 1900’s. After an included lunch buffet at Tony’s on Main, we will continue to the Candle Fusion Studio.  Step inside their studio and be ready for an amazing scent experience.  Over 100+ different fragrance oils are available for you to choose from and blend to create your custom, hand-poured candle. Next, we will tour the Shrine of Saint Philippine Duchesne. The Academy of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1818 by St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, a member of the Society of the Sacred Heart in France. 2018 marks the Bi-Centennial of the founding of the first free school west of the Mississippi. The Shrine of St. Philippine Duchesne was begun in 1951 to honor this Pioneer Religious of the Sacred Heart.  St. Philippine Duchesne was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1988 and is the fourth American Saint. We will end the day spending some time shopping in the many unique gift and antique shops along Main Street.
