“I’ll be Home for Christmas”

It’s predicted that approximately 90 million Americans will travel home for the holidays. If you’re heading back to Trempealeau County to spend time with family and friends, here’s a top ten list of things to do:

1.) Have an “old fashioned” Christmas at one of the area’s supper clubs

2.) Check out the view of the Mississippi River Valley from the Trempealeau Mounds that are located on a bluff that was modified by prehistoric people who lived in the current day Village of Trempealeau

3.) Visit a dining or drinking establishment in one of the County’s historic downtowns

4.) If the snow cover allows, try out a set of cross country skis or snowshoes at Perrot State Park or on some of the public lands in the County

5.) Experience fat tire biking at Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge

6.) After a snowstorm, check out snowmobile trail conditions on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism to explore over 200 miles of snowmobiling trails in the County

7.) Visit one of our unique and locally owned retail establishments

8.) Experience the offerings of a local winery or brewery

9.) Cruise a stretch of the Great River Road

10.) Take selfies at the Buena Vista overlook south of Osseo on HWY 53, which commemorates the story of a wealthy young man who rejected conventional life to live in the, then, wilds of Trempealeau County.
