Great place to take a walk if your alone or with someone else. You can watch the boats on the river or watch the sunset. Only place you can see where the Mississippi River and St. Croix meet.

We stopped in while traveling the Great River Road over the weekend. It is a lovely spot to stop and stretch your legs while enjoying the views!

Great views of the water. Picked up a walking tour book, a little out of date but was fun. The center closes at 5 so get there early.
