“The National Eagle Center is a beautiful building right on the Mississippi. It has live Eagles that you are able to visit, free classes with admission and a great museum all about the surrounding area. Worth the money to check out! Just 1/2 block from the duplex!”

“If you have seen Grumpy Old Men then Slippery's is the place to go. Right on the Mississippi River it is a great location to eat outdoors in the summer or snuggle inside surrounded by the nostalgia of a town proud to be know for "the home of Grumpy Old Men". ”

“This is our family's favorite place to eat in Wabasha! Right around the corner from the cabin is the Silver Star Saloon + Grill which is where you will find all things American and Tex- Mex! The Silver Star is also a great place to grab a very affordable drink and mix with the younger local crowd. Jukebox music is playing and the scene is usually hopping late into the night. ”

“VFW is a family favorite. They typically have live music on weekends and can get pretty busy if you hit the right night. Sunny the bar tender is always a laugh and they serve free popcorn if you ask! CHEAP drinks, a pool table, and jukebox make it a worth while stop. ”
