We keep returning to the Lake Pepin Area. Gorgeous views and drive along the Great River Road. Many small towns, hotels, eateries along the way. Lots of fishing, hunting, hiking, shopping opportunities. Makes for a great family trip or romantic weekend.

This beautiful lake is great for many activities. We drove to Pepin, WI and took a sailboat ride. The people at SailPepin were great. Fun and educational. Wine and appetizers and a sunset cruise.

We took a sightseeing paddleboat ride on the Pearl of the Lake on Lake Pepin. It was a gorgeous day and dozens of sailboats and pleasure craft of all sizes were on the lake. The 90 minute ride was a good time and very informative.

Great time with good friends. We had a blast, are out at local restaurants and had a fish fry. We'll be back. We caught a lot of bass and northern pike, looked for walleyes but didn't connect.
