City Map of Dubuque
2011 Edition - View Now
Located in the Tri-State Area, where the Mighty Mississippi creates a natural border between the states of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois,
Dubuque is within a day's drive of the Midwest's largest cities. Although we are Iowa's oldest city, we are also the most innovative, with a
forward-thinking approach to sustainability. Modernization projects, such as the nearly $400 million renovation of our riverfront to create
America's River, helped earn us the National Civic League's "All-America City" award in 2007. Whether flying in via the Dubuque Regional Airport
or arriving by car, there are many ways to explore the thriving region surrounding the "Masterpiece of the Mississippi." Bike, hike, boat, ski,
even take a seasonal hayride or sleigh ride to delight in our area's nature, heritage, and architecture.
Maybe you'd like to get an idea of why 60,000 people call the reinvented City of Dubuque home. Visit museums, historic sites, wineries,
and art galleries, just a few of the many attractions our town has. Opt to spend the entire day in downtown Dubuque, where there is plenty
to do and see. Enjoy the bustling energy as you walk along the renewed riverfront, take a ride in a classic trolley or horse-drawn carriage,
or use our inexpensive and convenient transit service.
Dubuque County is uniquely situated on the Mississippi River, directly across from Wisconsin's southwest corner and Illinois' northwestern state line. Cross over the Julien Dubuque Bridge and head north on 35 through East Dubuque to enter Grant County, Wisconsin. Going east on 20 takes you into Jo Daviess County, Illinois.
You'll never get stuck in a traffic jam while driving in Dubuque. In 2006, Dubuque was named by Expansion Management Magazine as 4th out of 362 "Easiest Commutes to Work," with a mean commute time of less than 14 minutes. Our streets are easily navigated and grouped into the Eagle Point District, the College Grandview District, the West End District, the South End District, and the Downtown District. With our unique wayfinding system, you will never be lost whether traveling by car or foot.
Keyline Transit buses run on fixed routes and schedules from 6 a.m. to 6:20 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. Our mini-bus services assist senior citizens and those with disabilities in maintaining their autonomy. Trolley buses operate seasonally between the Port of Dubuque and major downtown areas.
