The Foshay Tower Observation Deck and Museum was one of the best surprise we discovered this summer. It is on the National Register of Historical Places and a gem of an Art Deco Masterpiece. Its history is pretty awesome as well.

What I like about the Foshay Tower is the history of the building and the architecture. Head inside for a trip up to the bar with amazing views and a great local story of the Prohibition which is the name sake.

It is open to the public. We paid $10 a person to go up. I believe that hotel guests go up for free.
