Thinking About the La Crosse Region?

When looking to locate or relocate one’s business, it is imperative you look at the current/future state of the economy and geographic location of the desired region.  

The City of La Crosse, and La Crosse County itself, are located on the banks of Pool 8 of the World Famous Mississippi River.  Annually, over $673 million is generated by commercial navigation on the upper Mississippi River, supporting industries such as agriculture, energy, mining, and manufacturing. The region is also served by the BNSF, CN, and CP rail lines, the La Crosse Regional Airport,  and interstates 90 & 94 that seamlessly connect La Crosse to major metropolitan hubs such as Minneapolis/St. Paul, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Des Moines.

One of our region’s greatest economic strengths are the local high schools and six institutions of higher education that award over 10,000 degrees annually. The University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, Viterbo University, and Western Technical College are all located within the City of La Crosse, and Winona State University, St. Mary’s University – Winona, and Minnesota State College Southeast are located just across the river in Winona, Minnesota. This extensive education sector has created a pipeline of locally produced talent specializing in a wide variety of industries.
