We also have unique restaurants and an eclectic selection of retail shopping in our historic downtown.

Red Wing has excellent schools, complete healthcare, and abundant business opportunities.  Our newly installed high-speed fiber-optic network provides a platform for high technology entrepreneurs to develop new products and services.  The manufacturing sector represents a mix from small to large, lighter to heavier industry.

Our community spirit to preserve the past while planning for an exciting future has provided our residents a superb and vibrant quality of life.  I hope that you too will enjoy your time in Red Wing, whether it might be for a short visit or for a lifetime.
