Red Wing Things to Do

Friday, April 17th, 2015

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.
