Join us as we visit a few historical sites known in La Crosse. First we’ll learn about shrines and pilgrimages while visiting Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. We’ll get a guided tour of the Shrine Church and visit outdoor devotional areas and gardens. We’ll enjoy a double-entree lunch aboard the La Crosse Queen, a modern-day replica of the grand river boat, while we paddle the main channel of the river. This will be a great opportunity to watch for eagles and other wildlife, and of course take in the beautiful bluff scenery. Next we’ll visit the Hixon House Museum and learn about the Hixon family and their impact on the lumber industry in La Crosse. The final stops of our journey include a visit to the St. Rose of Viterbo Convent, home to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration and the Grand Dad Bluff for a beautiful view of the La Crosse River Valley.
