What Visit Winona partners say
“Visit Winona has been instrumental in my company’s success and growth. They truly want to see my business succeed and have so kindly assisted me in any way they could using their incredible resources, like the Visitors’ Center and their awesome partnership network. Pointour would not be where it is today without my Visit Winona partnership.”
Bailey Bestul, owner, Pointour Historic Walking Tours
“Many businesses can’t directly see how well the Visitor Center and Visit Winona work for them. Lakeview Drive Inn directly benefits from the Visit Winona website, brochure and Visitors Center. I know, because I ask new or unfamiliar customers how they found us or knew where we were located. Word of mouth, the internet and the printed word are great tools Visit Winona uses to promote us, and you, one of their local partners. I thank you for what you do!”
Tim Glowczewski, owner, Lakeview Drive Inn
