Owner description: Considered one of the most scenic drives in America.

I have driven this highway from one end to the other. The vistas of the mighty Mississippi and Lake Superior are a feast for the eyes. This is not a road anyone should ever plan on driving in a short time span --- there would be far too much beauty left unenjoyed.

This is a beautiful drive with the bluffs and the river. The fall colors were about 50% but still beautiful. Lots of nice places to pull off south of Lake City. There are quite a few fun places to visit on the way like the Eagle center and Lark Toys.

The upper Mississippi is a whole different animal than the Mississippi one finds in the South. This road, which we traversed from the Minneapolis area to Winona, will give you a whole new perspective on this gem. Take a break in Lake City, and enjoy the views across Lake Pepin (which you will learn is not really a lake at all). Get a snack at Rabbit's bakery while you are there.

The drive on Hwy 61 between La Crescent, Minnesota and Winona, Minnesota is one of the most beautiful in the country. To your left will be majestic bluffs and to your right is the Mississippi River with islands and wildlife to fill your senses.
