We saw many interesting sights in St. Charles, Missouri, a historic old town which butts up against the city of St. Louis. On our brief cruise Saturday (the ride we took without a working battery on the motorcycle), we cruised through a planned city near St. Charles called New Town; I didn't have my camera with me, so I took no pictures. Thank goodness I was able to swipe some photos off the Internet.
The houses and buildings had a nineteenth-century look about them, except they were brand new; some even reminded me of places in the French Quarter of New Orleans. To see some street views, click HERE. Charlene said she and Pat actually considered living in New Town for about twenty-four hours, so she had some information about the place garnered from the lady who showed them around. There's more information HERE.
Googling my way around the Internet, Wikipedia informed me that there are many such developments around the world, but this was my first experience seeing such a thing.
Next time, I'll have my camera. I'd better hurry, though, because Charlene tells me it will eventually be a gated community.
