Historic La Crosse Tour

The historic trolley tour trip begins downtown at the La Crosse County Convention and Visitors Bureau in Riverside Park. Enjoy the scenery of La Crosse while relaxing on the air-conditioned trolley bus.

Enjoy interesting narration provided by the La Crosse County Historical Society as you tour historic neighborhoods and establishments.
