PAUL MASON BARNES A founding Producing Director of Winona’s Great River Shakespeare Festival; Award-winning theatre director

“There are an infinite number of pleasures to behold in Winona, from the collection of restored Victorian architecture to the sheer beauty of the Bluffs.” MUST-DO: Time at or on

the Mississippi River, getting out in a Wenonah kayak or canoe — or a boat of any kind, really — and feeling the transformative power of the Mississippi surge throughout my physical and spiritual being is not to be missed.
