In the spring there is the 100 mile garage sale. In the summer every town has an art fest. In the fall the trees are full of color and the sky is filled with eagles.

Don't miss a chance to see the Eagles hunting and the colors changing on this part of the river. You may even get a chance to see the American Queen or the American Dutchess paddle boats.

Very large scenic part of the Mississippi river. Best observed from a boat on the lake itself. Always wildlife around the lake including bald eagles.

If you're in southeastern Minnesota for any reason, make a quick trip to Lake Pepin. Even a drive around the lake or renting a boat to enjoy the day, is fantastic. The scenery is most excellent, and Fishing is incredible.
