The First Barge contest is closed.
We will announce the winner as soon as the barge comes through!
Lake City is nestled along the banks of Lake Pepin and the Mississippi River, located on Highway 61, also known as the Great River Road, just 68 miles southeast of Minneapolis/St. Paul and 34 miles east of Rochester, MN.
Our central location means you spend less time on the road and more time boating, golfing, snowmobiling, browsing our quaint shops and fine galleries… or just chilling in a hammock.
Join us for four seasons of family fun, romantic getaways or adventures with friends. Our dramatic landscapes and cultural and recreational activities rival northern Minnesota, but with a longer season, warmer water, slower pace and none of the crowds.
