Historic Winona, Minnesota

Winona, MN, United States
0 Kudos
Winona, is a sleepy but attractive Mississippi River town, old and historically prosperous by Minnesota standards. There’s a lot to see here – museums, historic churches, lakeside parks. You can ramble along the river bluffs, take in some local theater, or have a nice meal. But just wandering around looking at beautiful old buildings can be fun. The town hall is impressive for a town of 28,000. And there are some mighty pretty churches built of native stone and brick. But for any Minnesotan, it’s a thrill to stand in front of the world headquarters of the J.R. Watkins company, purveyors of the freshest black pepper, the sweetest cinnamon, and the purest vanilla extract since 1868.

Delicious burgers and local brew. And it's pronounced "boobs" not "bubs".
