Hudson

Hudson Defines Fun

Hudson is a quaint river town rich on history and natural beauty. Located on the banks of the scenic St. Croix River, it is the western gateway to Wisconsin, only minutes from the Twin Cities.  A year-round outdoor destination, Hudson is also known for its theater and art galleries, community events and one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants that keep visitors returning to experience more FUN!

Defining Fun

The 3 words I would use to describe the Wisconsin brand of fun are...

Friendly, entertaining, and picturesque.

The brand of fun in Wisconsin means...

Hiking to the falls at Willow River State Park in the morning, eating brie cheese curds at Pier 500 and cruising on the  St. Croix River in the afternoon, and watching the sunset over the St. Croix River followed by  dinner and a show at one of our spectacular restaurants and local theaters.

Examples of Fun Experiences

To bring fun to life, we provide experiences like...

St. Croix River boat cruises, year-round recreation at Willow River State Park and community events and festivals.

I know our visitors are having fun because they’ve told us...

How much they enjoy the spectacular scenery and outdoor activities, how welcoming everyone is and that Hudson is a dining experience!

Tips for Others in the Industry

We’re making sure our visitors/customers experience fun by training our staff...

To think like they’re on vacation!
