The best kept secret in the Midwest is La Crosse. This beautiful vista is nestled between the bluffs of Wisconsin and Minnesota, all towering over the Mighty ( and beautiful) Mississippi River. We offer not only beauty in scenery, but beauty in humans, animals, birds, and fish. See eagles swoop for food in the Mississippi. You may have deer relaxing in your backyard. Foxes too, sometimes. Pelicans come here for a rest each year. Bass and sunfish and trout are plentiful. And taste good, too. The population is just the right size for good living, plenty of relaxation and hard work when not playing. Three universities/colleges add to the energy and vitality of La Crosse. And to the economy. The unemployment rate is always second lowest in Wisconsin – further testimony that things are good in God’s Country. Our restaurants and gathering facilities are second to none. Some of them allow riverside pleasures. The arts are rampant in our city. Thousands of boats, small and large, old and new dot the Mississippi much of the year. Even a Wisconsin winter is a treat in La Crosse Almost everyone who visits here heads home with a smile remembering their time spent in one of America’s beauty spots – La Crosse, Wisconsin.
