Hike the Trails or Take a Gamble at Lady Luck Casino
Inside the Country Inn & Suites, Prairie du Chien, guests of all ages love to splash around in Bear Foot Bay Indoor Water Park. Stop by Cabela’s distribution center and outdoor supply store right next door to view the beautiful aquarium loaded with local fish. If you stock up on outdoor equipment while you’re there, take it with you on trips to various area parks, such as Effigy Mounds National Monument, Pikes Peak State Park, Wyalusing State Park and others. Visitors who are at least 21 years old may catch a tour and tasting at the award-winning Eagles Landing Winery just across the border in Marquette, IA. You might see an actual bald eagle landing on your way there; Prairie du Chien is along their annual migration route! If you need a retreat from the outdoors, gamble at Lady Luck Casino or take in the latest movie at Prairie Cinema.
