Why Winona?

Winona residents and visitors enjoy this beautiful island city located on the banks of the Mississippi River among towering, wooded bluffs. In Winona, the beauty of the natural world combines with modern conveniences to produce a quality of life that draws from the best of both worlds.

Winona is a perfect size for diversity to thrive without losing its small town flavor. It is large enough to support many industries, many of national and international distinction, and is the home to three institutions of higher education! There are many opportunities for recreation, entertainment, sightseeing and unique shopping.

Cultural events, serene parks, a broad array of industries, educational opportunities, quality community services, and four seasons of outdoor fun – Winona is a great place to raise a family, operate a business, or just enjoy life.
