Lacrosse has done a wonderful job of creating an enchanting walkway right next to the mighty Mississippi river. There is a beautiful garden next to the Information Center that was very enjoyable.

The riverside park is lovely for just walking along the river or sitting on a bench to watch Ole Man River roll by. But the place can also be very vibrant and exciting with LaCrosse has an event there. It's worth a visit.

An absolutely beautiful walk along the Mississippi River. We were there on a very hot humid day and the breeze off the river made it a wonderful stroll. A must do in La Crosse
