Highly recommend this tour! Beautiful scenery, calm waters, and Avery is a very knowledgeable, friendly guide. Avery made us feel comfortable and explained all the turns and procedures for crossing the channel. We ended the tour with a close up of a huge bald eagle,

Lark Toys

Reviewed By Sandy D - Holland, Michigan

We stopped to look at the museum and toy memorabilia. Each display is wonderful to view and fondly remember personally having some of the same toys. Even without children or grandchildren it is a fun place. If you're looking for educational, nostalgic, or currently popular toys, this is the store for you. They also have a snack bar, wonderful, hand carved carousel and clean restrooms.

Buena Vista Park

This park, located 500 feet up on a bluff, offers scenic views.

Reviewed By Tim D - Saint Joseph, United States

If you're passing through Alma, take the time to drive to the top of the bluff. You'll be rewarded for an incredible view of the Mississippi River, the town of Alma, barges, the lock and dam, and the view across the valley into Minnesota and the bluffs on the opposite side. This city park has a bathroom and picnic tables, benches, and swings. It's well worth a visit any time of the day.

Coffee Mill Ski Area

Considered one of the best areas for coulee skiing, this area's unique bowl arrangement protects skiers from the harsh winter winds.

Reviewed By Monique G - Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

We had a group of 10 who have not been skiing since we were all in middle school (20+ yrs), so we all signed up for the 50 minute ski lesson or snow board lesson. Can I tell you our instructor was AWESOME! She taught us the important pizza and french fry moves! Well after the instruction time, we were all (well most of us..lol) were able to get off of the bunny hills and really enjoy the slopes. It also helped that we had fresh powder from the morning snow! I would definitely come back again! Oh and there is lots of food and a bar!

Ideal location for spotting eagles in early spring.

Reviewed By Cindy6074 - New Brighton, Minnesota

This was our first trip to check out the eagles. I didn't know what to expect but was so happy we went. We sat at a couple of the pullouts on hwy 61 and watched eagles for hours. We counted at least 50 or more. Most were at a distance on the ice shelf in the river but we did see some fly directly over our car. Huge wing span for sure. We saw one right in Lake City by the park bring a fish close to us and he sat in the tree and ate it. Great weekend and it was warm too so that made it even better.
