Winona is blessed by location. The stretch of river between Winona and Dubuque, Iowa, lined by towering green bluffs, is the loveliest on the Mississippi, often likened to the Rhine in Germany.

Even starchy Lt. Zebulon Pike was struck by the view on his way up the Mississippi in 1805, calling it "a prospect so variegated and romantic that a man may scarcely expect to enjoy such a one but twice or thrice in the course of his life."

It's most stunning from above, where the Garvin Heights overlook affords views of the town, thick with steeples and domes and spread between Lake Winona and the twisting Mississippi. But it's also striking from the streets, whose stone edifices sport an abundance of turrets and towers, and from the water, where arrowhead marshes and wooded islands dot sloughs and channels.

Quoted from the St.Paul Pioneer Press - Travel Section - June 25, 2006
