Red Wing Bucket List: Sail Lake Pepin


"Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me..." Cue the air guitar as the bombastic ballad plays through your head. The 1977 Styx song hints at your next activity to add to the growing list of local adventures.

Lake Pepin offers much more than just a priceless view of beauty, relief from the heat, fishing haven or even the birthplace of waterskiing.
