Let's Go for a Walk Inside!:

Want to count your steps but don’t have a “fitbit”? Our very own Doug Blakesley has done the counting for you. If you find yourself needing somewhere to walk inside this winter, stop at Pier 55. If you walk from end to end of our hallway (Fiesta Cancun to Pottery Museum) going one way, it is 89 steps for men and 101 steps for women. Make 8-10 trips back and forth, and you have approximately a thousand extra steps in your day. Keep moving! No sign up, fee or membership. Just your walking shoes.

Unless otherwise specified:

All classes, activities and events are held at Pier 55.

Registration is always at the Pier 55 front desk, in person or by phone:

240 Harrison St., Red Wing, MN, 651-327-2255.
