Hundreds of bald eagles are beginning their migration up the Mississippi River. You can easily watch them soar above Red Wing’s bluff country. You might want to take a scenic drive along the Mississippi to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha (one hour drive from Red Wing).
The Moondance Inn is running some great specials this time of year. Go to our Specials Page for details.
February is a great music month at the Sheldon Theater. Downtown Red Wing’s premier theater stage is host to Leo Kottke, 7pm. February 6th., Adonis Puentos and the Voice of Cuba, 7pm. February 12th., a big Mardi Gras welcome by Buckwheat Zydeco, 5:30 February 14th, and Sinatra and Company doing music from the Rat Pack era, 1:30 and 7pm. February 26th. There are no bad seats at the Sheldon and the acoustics are great.
Stay at the Moondance Inn and enjoy premium rooms with our winter Specials.
It’s cold outside but nice and warm inside the Moondance. Some of our guests are skiing at Welch Ski Village. They will return to the inn and relax in their private two-person whirlpool. This evening we will serve them wine and appetizers in front of our great room fireplace. We are buying them a great steak dinner at the Bayside Steakhouse (check out our January specials). To enjoy all of this they only drove one hour from the Twin Cities.
One of the great adventures in this area is to drive the Great River Road. Red Wing serves as the starting point. You cross the river into Wisconsin and then follow the Mississippi River to Nelson Wisconsin. Along the way you will see breath taking scenery, pass through numerous quaint villages, enjoy great food, taste wine, and see bald eagles. You cross the river back to Wabasha and can stop to visit the National Eagle Center. It’s a great road trip easily completed in a day.
What a great fall season; perhaps one of the best since moving to Minnesota. Then there is winter. So, what to do? How about a quick trip to the Moondance Inn in Red Wing. We are offering great weekday rates starting at $89 per night. We have a Friday night all inclusive package starting at $165 and a weekend all inclusive package starting at $350. All rooms feature private baths with two-person whirlpools, electric fireplaces, and beautiful antique furnishings (no doilies).

This is a great week to visit Red Wing. Davina and the Vagabonds, a hot New Orleans style blues and jazz band, kick it off Wednesday night, 7pm, with a free concert in the park. Friday starts Red Wing River City Days with live music starting at noon and going to 11pm followed by a laser light show. Saturday’s music begins at 5pm with the Back Channel Blues Band and followed at 8:30 by the Lamont Cranston Blues Band. A giant fireworks display follows. There are also food booths, rides for the kids, a beer tent, and a classic car show. All of this takes place right on the banks of the Mississippi.
