General Information About Alma, Wisconsin:

Alma, Wisconsin is a quaint town nestled between the Mississippi River and towering limestone bluffs. Settled in the 1840’s by Swiss woodcutters providing fuel for steamboats heading north, our little town of less than a thousand continues to honor its heritage by flying the Swiss flag up and down Main Street. Blocks of eclectic shops and galleries line our picturesque city center. Find original artwork and unique gifts, and enjoy visiting with our numerous resident artists. Grab a bite to eat or a relaxing beverage in one of various pubs and restaurants. Watch barges pass through Lock & Dam #4 or enjoy the eagles soaring above it. Alma is surrounded by fishing and hunting adventures. Buffalo County boasts as the White Tail capital of the world. Three boat landings, a courtesy dock and a marina are available in Alma. Or rent a houseboat, fishing boat or pontoon. Stay in campgrounds, RV parks, B&Bs, motels or hotels. Alma welcomes visitors year round to share in its beauty. Sightseeing from bluff-top to valley is spectacular. Whether biking, hiking, boating or birding, exploring Alma and the Mississippi Valley is an unforgettable experience.
