Getting There & Away
Hwy 61, running east–west, cuts through Red Wing's tiny downtown. Hwy 63 crosses the Mississippi River, allowing access into Wisconsin.
Amtrak's Empire Builder train passes through Red Wing twice a day. An early morning train (8:54am) connects the city to Milwaukee ($52, five hours) and onward to Chicago ($65, seven hours). An evening train (8:45pm) runs toward St Paul ($12, one hour), and onward to points west. Buy tickets online, as Red Wing's tiny train station is not staffed.
