Downtown Wabasha has many unique shops offering a mix of gift shops, art galleries, home decor, specialty shops and gourmet chocolates. The shops are conveniently located along a three block stretch of Main Street, just a block away from the river. The best part about Wabasha shopping is the friendly shopkeepers, unique merchandise and customer service- no big box or chain stores in sight.
River Junction Arts Council offers an art gallery in the basement of the Chocolate Escape several times a year featuring unique artists. Take a stroll around town and check out the many sculptures available for purchase. While visiting the art gallery in the Chocolate Escape, pick your choice of gourmet chocolates and an espresso drink. www.thechocolateescape.com
