Visiting Winona

Winona is one of the most beautiful places in the country, nestled between the covered limestone river bluffs that rise 500 feet and the stunning mighty Mississippi River.

The historic architecture and cultural opportunities give Winona a soul that is living, breathing and growing. Still, Winona and its wealth of culture & arts, history, recreation and festivals, is relatively undiscovered.

In many ways Winona is still an island in the wilderness waiting to be discovered again. Eagles fly overhead, deer sleep in yards and on the outskirts of Winona you can hear the sound of coyotes on still summer nights.

All of this is waiting for you. Discover Winona, the historic island city on the Mississippi River.
