We do summer better

Looking for something different? You’re in for a treat. 

Picasso, Shakespeare, Beethoven, and all the outdoor recreation you can handle  – it sounds like a weird combination, but not in Winona. Summer 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.  

Just imagine – hiking, biking and paddling trails, Shakespeare and Beethoven 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 will love us. Seriously. Just look at this video, then check out the links below or view our Visitor Guide online.
