SPRING ACTIVITIES
in Alma Wisconsin!
SPRING is here and it's a beautiful time to visit the Buffalo County area and Alma, Wisconsin.  With warm weather we are seeing signs of spring migration along the Mississippi Flyway.  It's perfect weather to get outside to hike Buena Vista Trail or climb our 13 stair step streets.  Main Street Shopping Weekends provide opportunities to explore & shop along Alma's historic Main Street at unique local galleries & shops.  Bald eagles are flying overhead and there are many boats below Lock & Dam #4 with folks fishing.   All of this makes Alma the spring vacation destination of Buffalo County.
