Nestled at the river’s edge below towering limestone bluffs, Lansing and the surrounding area provide an ideal place for all kinds of outdoor activities.

This area is a premier birding mecca due to its location within the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge.  An annual fall birding festival draws people from all over the world.  The spring migration is spectacular as well. The Refuge is the nation’s most visited wildlife refuge. The refuge is located, literally, at Lansing’s front door. The American Bird Conservancy has officially recognized the refuge as a Globally Important Birding Area.

Motorcyclists, enjoy cruising around the countryside and relaxing at the Scenic Valley Motel at the end of the day.

Numerous Mississippi River sandbars are ideal for swimming, picnicking and relaxing.

Enjoy all of these activities while staying at the Scenic Valley Motel, where you can expect a stay that is comfortable, clean and quiet.
