We have been charmed! Trips to Discover named Winona as Minnesota’s most charming small town. Why? Because we have over 100 buildings on the National Historic Register, magnificent stained glass windows in banks and churches, a lake with a walking and biking path along with canoe rentals and a rose garden, and of course the mighty Mississippi River. These attributes give Winona its small town appeal to locals and visitors. But it doesn’t stop there. Winona has its 44 unique local restaurants, 10 major festivals, 7 museums, and all year-round events that make it a destination.
