Red Wing, MN. Moondance Inn Activities

June 2nd, 2011

At last, some sunny weather. I might have even sweated the other day.

Red Wing, MN. is offering a wide range of activities. Would a river cruise to view bald eagles be of interest? Perhaps your preference is a historic trolley tour. How many of you would like to see how Red Wing Shoes are made. A factory tour is available. Sipping local produced wine while eating a gourmet wood fired pizza is yours at Falconer Vineyards. How about live comedy with Tim Allen? This is but a few of the many activities to enjoy when visiting Red Wing this summer.
