  • We drove through to see their Christmas display of lights. Beautiful! We also pulled in to Pettibone across the river to look at the lights from a distance. Breath taking!  more »

  • This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Wisconsin. You can enjoy a walk through the park or sit on a bench near the Mighty Mississippi River and maybe watch a barge go up or down stream. A favorite is to watch the sun set on the river. You can also enjoy a ride on the paddle boat " The La Crosse Queen. There is also a museum here and a beautiful garden to walk through. It's all worth a thousand pictures.
  • Nice stretch of river for a quiet walk. Park is big enough for a fairly large amount of people to be there without feeling too crowded. a bunch of water fountains and two interesting statues. A short walk from excellent ice cream [The Pearl] and a number of hotels. Decent amounts of parking nearby.
