Add the Rotary Lights in La Crosse, Wisconsin to your Must-See List this Christmas Season!

One of the magical places in the midwest between Thanksgiving and Christmas happens just over the Mississippi River in La Crosse, Wisconsin. There are thousands of lights, displays, live music and even places where you can warm up in a huge park on the edge of the Mississippi River. I had a chance to go last year with my daughter and although it was a grand temp of 0 when we strolled through, we had a blast.  See photos and more about what this place offers here.
