We do winter better

Haven’t been to Winona in a while? Brace yourself. 

Van Gogh, rock and roll, ice climbing, and Emmy-Award-winning films  – it sounds like a weird combination, but not in Winona. Winter is one of our favorite seasons because we’ve come up with endless ways to entertain ourselves and, quite frankly, we’re having a blast down here.  

A film festival, fat tire bike and hiking trails, theater performances, scores of local artisans and one of the most jaw-dropping museums in the Midwest, plus sweet shops and some serious foodie bliss – you’re going to need a weekend for this one. 

And situated on the Mississippi River just two hours south of the Twin Cities, this glorious getaway takes no time at all. Come visit. You’re going to love us. Seriously. Just look at this video, then check out the links below or download our Visitor Guide.
