If you would enjoy a true small town, home style Holiday, visit Red Wing. The day after Thanksgiving visit for the Holiday Stroll. Downtown Red Wing is decked out with lights, carolers, street food vendors, and many great shops to find unique holiday gifts. Return the first Saturday in December for the Bed and Breakfast Open House. Grand homes dating back to 1874 will be beautifully decorated. You can visit 5 B&B’s along with the historic St. James Hotel.

February is a great month in Red Wing. If you enjoy music, Leo Kottke is playing the Sheldon Theatre on February 6th. If comedy is your thing then check out the latest rendition of Late Night Catechism on February 13th, also at the Sheldon. February is also when hundreds of bald eagles migrate into the Mississippi Valley. Beginning February 20th, visit Colville Park, right in Red Wing, and view these magnificent birds up close and personal.

The Moondance Inn serves dessert at breakfast on weekends. Yum. But Red Wing offers much more in terms of dining. For example, check out The Norton’s Downtown & The Crazy Cat Lounge, The Staghead, Jimmy’s Pub at the St. James Hotel, Fiesta Mexicana, The Harbor Bar for Jamaican food, Bev’s Cafe for down home cooking, and the list goes on. If you travel on your tummy then Red Wing is a great stop.
