Anniversary Trip Part II: Walking Tour of Ste. Genevieve

With all of the wine, cheese, crackers and chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds (now a winery must-have) we consumed at Cave Winery, we knew some exercise would be in order. For you out-of-towners, Ste. Genevieve is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River approximately sixty miles south of St. Louis and is about 250 years old. Today the town has the greatest concentration of original French Colonial buildings in North America and is still the only surviving French Colonial Village in the United States. Cool.

And, according to these signs, it has spent alot of those years under water. Check out this sign that marked the historic flood levels:


So, grab a glass of wine and join me as we take a tour of this quaint little town.

Next stop, LuLu's Antiques and La Dee Marie Bed and Breakfast!
