The La Crosse Region is brimming with adventure! No matter your niche, there is truly something for everyone. Nestled between ancient bluffs and along the Mississippi River, the area offers exciting flavors, charming history, captivating views and unparalleled outdoor recreation suitable for all ages. Hike or mountain bike over 100 miles of trails along the bluffs and waterways. Paddle the many waterways by kayak, canoe and stand up paddleboard, and explore the area with your favorite entourage. Don’t forget the fishing opportunities, either.
Experience local culture and cuisine at Moon Tunes, a legendary festival in Riverside Park that’s held Thursday evenings (May through September, 5:30-8 p.m.), next to Historic Downtown La Crosse and the Mississippi River. The event draws in both locals and visitors for live performances and savory bites. Before or after the festival, sample La Crosse’s excellent dining options, sprinkled throughout the area.
The La Crosse Region has plenty of other interesting activities to keep your crew busy, including goat yoga, swimming, Segway tours, riverboat cruises, cheese curds and tasting homemade ice cream made with fresh Wisconsin dairy. Get ready to make memories with those that matter the most between the bluffs and along the Mississippi River!
