Winona was featured in “Trips to Discover” a popular digital travel magazine. It was listed as one of the top ten places to visit in Minnesota because of its historic buildings, stained glass windows, and outdoor beauty and recreation.
“This town that’s known as America’s stained glass capital has an 11-block area downtown that’s on the National Register of Historic Districts, and its streets are lined with 19th-century buildings. History buffs will enjoy taking a walking tour to explore it, strolling by the gorgeous stained glass of the WNB Financial and other glittering jewels, including the Polish-designed Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka. Take a river cruise to view the town from the water, enjoy paddling a canoe or kayak in the calm Mississippi backwaters or on Lake Winona. Lake Park, the city park that surrounds Lake Winona, hosts a beach, rose garden, a Frisbee golf course, five miles of walking and biking trails, and more.”
