The National Eage Center sounds cool, planning to check that out as I've always been fascinated by raptors.

We have been there a few times through the years.  My wife took our Grandsons a few years ago when they were about 8 and 10 and they were amazed with the Eagles in the room with them.  The Eagles don't fly across the room, like the Owls do at their Center.  Most of these Eagles that are brought into the room have been found hurt and cannot fly good.


MN has a "Support Our Troops" license plate, that we have on two of our vehicles and has the portrait of one of the Eagles that we saw several years ago.  Unfortunately he died last year. 


When you ride along the River near Wabasha, you can see lots of Eagles soaring overhead.

If you are into Antiques, La Crosse has two of the best Antiques Malls in the state, just blocks from the Radisson.  If you are not an Antique collector, bring along your antique collector and they can spend the day enjoy looking at the antiques and maybe even purchase a few to take home.


See this link.

This and much more to do in La Crosse for everyone, not just the riders.

A reminder, if you are planning to go to Elmer's Auto & Toy Museum, they are only open every other weekend in the summer.  They will be open Sat and Sunday, June 9 & 10, 9-5pm each day.  They are located on the edge of Fountain City, WI, 40 miles from the Radisson.  A scenic ride along the river, and when you arrive at the museum, it has one of the highest lookout points over the river.
They have over 100 antique, classic and muscle cars and trucks.  A 1929 Model A Phaeton car on display in their family room.  There is also one of the largest pedal car displays in the country, with over 400 Dolls, as well as thousands of toys.
This is all located in over 6 buildings, most of them built just to house all of these items.
Check out their website for more details.

Thanks for the tip Carl. That might be something to do on Sunday, since I'll be arriving on Saturday night with my brother Steve. Really looking forward to a good time at STAR 2018. Thanks for all the hard work by you and the other organizers.
