It had been quite a few years since I had been to Grandad Bluff. Many improvements have been made since then. The views are beautiful!

“Grand View from Grandad Bluff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a must see while in the La Crosse area. It is worth the drive to the top of the Bluff to see 3 states (WI, MN, IA) and the newly improved lookout area. The fencing and sitting areas and viewing places were ok a few years ago, but they are outstanding now. Everything is solid and wonderful and clean. Just take Main Street in La Crosse to Bliss Road and follow it to the top for a vista you will never forget. Take a picnic and make an afternoon of it. This is a highlight for our family and also for friends that we take up there.

“Beautiful”

This place is great. It is high on the bluff and gives a great view of the area. It is clean and so easy to maneuver around. A must see if in LaCrosse.

“Not to be missed”

Take Main Street east up the winding road. (No, you are not in Colorado!) Enjoy the views of the city of La Crosse,and the Mississippi river area. We were there around sunset; spectacular!
