Best of Bluff Country
Eagle Watching: Thanks to the rapid current that keeps the river from freezing near Wabasha, this area has some of the best eagle-spotting opportunities in the country, especially in the winter.
LARK Toys: With everything from hand-carved puzzles to chemistry sets, not to mention a whimsical carousel, Lost Arts Revival by Kreofsky in little Kellogg is one of the world’s greatest toy stores.
Great River Bluffs State Park: This park offers some of the best Mississippi River views anywhere, and a good campground to boot.
Lanesboro: This little town in the heart of the Driftless Area’s scenery, near the middle of the Blufflands State Trail and on the edge of Amish country, is just too lovely to miss.
Forestville and Mystery Cave State Park: In this lovely and diverse park, you can explore Minnesota’s longest cave, step back to the 19th century in the village of Forestville, and hike wooded hills and valleys.
Harmony: From the goat farm to the woodcarving museum to the Amish tours, Harmony surprises as much as it delights.
SPAM Museum: This humorous and high-tech celebration of the mystery meat is one of the state’s best museums.
