Even with all of our delays we still pulled into Red Wing with daylight to burn. At first glance the AmericInn was a little disappointing, so we made a half-hearted effort to see about other accommodations. It didn't take many phone calls to realize that after Tuesday night it was going to be the only place we could stay, and we made up our minds accordingly. After unloading enough luggage from the van to restore its proper ride height we went back to the historic district to eat and explore. The most obvious feature are the hundreds of hanging flower baskets decorating the street lights.
Red Wing, Minnesota!
