Think Mississippi River. History, colorful characters, river towns all come to mind. A couple that stayed with us at the Moondance Inn rented kayaks and were professionally guided through the flooded backwater forests. This was the picture they took at sunset. This photo speaks volumes as to the beauty and majesty of this great river. Red Wing and the surrounding country side is filled with such natural wonders. If you would like to take this tour contact http://brokenpaddleguiding.com/. This great getaway is only an hour from the Twin Cities or Rochester.

Numerous picnic area’s are set up and the views are panoramic taking in the city of Red Wing, the Mississippi River, and the surrounding bluff country.

The Bayside Tap and Steakhouse serves perfectly prepared steak dinners at very reasonable prices. A guest at the Moondance ordered this 32oz. beauty. Wow. They have much smaller steaks, great Ahi tuna, and other tasty dishes. We highly recommend.
Oh yes. He ate the whole thing.

Great women’s clothing store
Is shopping a part of your vacation trip? You won’t find Nordstrom’s or Macy’s but you will find numerous unique stores to shop in Red Wing. Go Brazen is a very cool women’s clothing and jewelry store. The owner is welcoming, knowledgeable, and you don’t have to be a size 2 to find something you will love.

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.
