1st Anniversary Trip: Scenery, Spices, Sweets & Sounds
A full day of fun to celebrate my first year in business with prizes to win throughout the day!
First, we’ll be welcomed at the Osseo Nickel where a light breakfast snack and coffee will be waiting for us. A couple of travelers will win gift certificates for this store filled with antiques and fun-finds.
Then, a scenic drive leads us towards a touch of spice in Winona for a tour of the Watkins Museum with added time to shop.
We’ll stop for an included lunch (drinks are on your own) at the Jefferson Pub & Grill, an 1818 railroad freight house, a Winona time capsule listed on the State and National Historic Registry.
Then we’re heading up the Minnesota side of the Mississippi to Wabasha for a mouth-watering tour and tasting at The Chocolate Escape. There will be time to sit and relax while taking in the views of the Mississippi River. Coffee bar or ice cream is on your own.
Time to head back to Wisconsin, but we’re not done celebrating yet!!!
Our final stop will be Knapp, Stout, & Co. Coffeehouse in Downsville for a private party with toe-tapping live music by Rich Schroeder along with an included dinner and dessert. There will be time to meander through this beautifully renovated historic building and shop items from local vendors.
Before departing we round out an early evening of celebration with more fun and prize drawings!
