AUTUMN IS HERE, WINTER IS IN THE AIR!
Alma, Wisconsin offers you a place to get away for a short stay in a scenic environment.  We're just a short drive from many Midwest cities.  The combination of Bald Eagles, the Driftless Area and the Mississippi River are a real treat.  Fall colors in Alma, Buffalo County and along the Wisconsin Great River Road were beautiful, Tundra Swans are still in the area.  A few snowflakes have fallen and winter is in the air.  Enjoy our National Historic District and beautiful historic river town in the midst of Autumn as you step into history.  Plan your Autumn travel around our upcoming events, especially Christmas In Alma every weekend from mid-November through Christmas Eve.
