Flights & getting there

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.
