What Visit Winona partners say

“I initially signed on as a Visit Winona Partner simply to be listed in the Visitor Guide. Seriously, the Guide is beautiful and goes out to thousands of visitors and locals every year.  It was a total no-brainer to be a part of it. What I didn’t realize at the time, was how much I would come to value the wisdom of my fellow partners and the tools available to me through the Visit Winona staff. Even though my business is small, I feel like I am part of something really big.”

Gaby Peterson, owner, Yarnology

“Many businesses can’t directly see how well the Visitor Center and Visit Winona work for them. Lakeview Drive Inn directly benefits from the Visit Winona website, brochure and Visitors Center. I know, because I ask new or unfamiliar customers how they found us or knew where we were located. Word of mouth, the internet and the printed word are great tools Visit Winona uses to promote us, and you, one of their local partners. I thank you for what you do!”

Tim Glowczewski, owner, Lakeview Drive Inn
