Here is an easy Friday night get-away. Drive to Red Wing (about an hour from the Twin Cities). Check in to the Moondance Inn. Your room will have a fireplace and two-person whirlpool. Wine and appetizers are served that evening. We buy your dinner at Marie’s Underground (a special we are running until April 30, 2016). You walk one block to Jimmy’s pub for great cocktails and live music in a warm English pub. Oh, did I mention a full, home cooked breakfast in the morning?

Toasty warm in the Moondance Inn great room.
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.

Look what the coleus drug in.

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.

Finally the plants are coming up. I think this is called Spring. These pretty little tulips are just outside our kitchen door so we pass by many times a day. It’s good.

If you would enjoy a true small town, home style Holiday, visit Red Wing. The day after Thanksgiving visit for the Holiday Stroll.

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.

Many people think the name of Red Wing came from Red Wing Shoes or Red Wing Pottery. The name came from the leader of the Mdewakanton Dakota Sioux.
This Sioux tribe had lived in this region long before settlers arrived. They are the owners of Treasure Island Resort and Casino and have made great contributions to our region.

Spring is in the air. More people are walking Red Wing’s historic district as the weather gets warmer. This home represents just one of the many styles of homes from the late 1850’s through the 1930’s that you will find in Red Wing’s distinctive neighborhoods.
