Classic steam paddle wheelers still ply the Mississippi’s waters in La Crosse; just a small part of this lovely city’s charm. Spreading from the edge of the river to the base of steep bluffs, La Crosse enjoys a glorious natural setting. The city’s Main Street ends at Grandad Bluff, which rises 570 feet above the city. The beautiful park atop the bluff offers a stunning view of three states: Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. Downtown, Riverside Park provides a perfect vantage point for watching river traffic and for boarding one of the two paddle wheelers that offer sightseeing cruises. Yacht cruises and eco-tours on the river are also available. Enjoy unique shops, entertainment, museums, galleries, and award-winning restaurants in the city’s historic downtown.
