Attractions & Activities
Lansing Iowa is a Mississippi river town of 1000 people located about 30 miles South of LaCrosse, Wisconsin and about 3.5 hours Southeast of Minneapolis. For the folks who live here all year, we have many of the things that make it a great small town like a post office, grocery store, library and many small businesses that cater to locals and tourists alike.
Our downtown is very close to the Mississippi River and in fact, Main St. gently slopes down to and dead ends in The River. In the old days, that’s where you would have embarked and disembarked the steamboats that use to ply these waters. We still have a great amount of history on our Main St., with many original buildings and storefronts that all add to the value and charm of our Riverfront town.
This site was created with a blend of historical and new information to appeal to anyone looking to live here or just visit here. What makes this guide unique is that we have also included content on things to see and do within 40 miles of Lansing Iowa, regardless of what state or city the ‘point of interest’ happens to be in.
What made our town popular back in the old days is still what makes it popular today- the great fishing, great scenery, outdoor activities and best of all, the friendly people who live here. What’s old is new, we hope you enjoy the site and will browse what we have to offer and come and make my Lansing your Lansing!
