Business spotlight: Wisconsin Great River Road

Traveling along the Wisconsin Great River Road? Learn more about these businesses along the scenic byway that skirts the Mississippi River.

Smith Brothers Landing is a delightful shop offering beautiful, handmade artwork. Set on the shores of Lake Pepin, the exterior of the shop has a storybook quality that belies the wonderful artwork you’ll find inside. The highlight of the shop is the hand-wrought steel and glass sculptures made by owner Dave Smith.

Pepin’s Dockside Mercantile is also right on Lake Pepin and offers clothing, books, gifts and a variety of local products.

When you’re looking for lodging along the Wisconsin Great River Road, be sure to stop at the Great River Amish Inn in Pepin. The inn is located across the street from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, and each room boasts solid-oak handmade Amish furniture.
