Situated in the tri-states of Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois, on the mighty Mississippi, Dubuque and its surrounding communities are an open playground not only for the young, but also the young at heart. From its history as the first town to be established in Iowa, built on the hard work of miners and those that worked the docks, to its reinvention as one of the most modern cities in the Midwest, Dubuque is a true vacation destination.
Tourists will delight in the America's River Project, a complete overhaul of the Port of Dubuque. It features an interactive museum and aquarium, various ways to explore the river itself, an awe-inspiring hotel and indoor water park, an 86,000 square-foot convention center, an invigorated casino and gaming complex, a riverwalk, an expansive outdoor plaza, and a large amphitheater. Further up the river, visitors will find a state-of-the-art remodeled gaming complex on Schmitt Island.
A wealth of education and entertainment is available year round. Explore historical sites, indulge in nature's bounty, and dream along the riverside. Jump into the swing of things, whether it be golfing, gaming, biking along a legendary trail, snowshoeing across rolling hills, or cruising on the river. Indulge in breakfast at a country inn, luxuriate in the services of a posh spa, tour a winery, or windowshop in the heart of downtown. Whatever it is you want to do while taking a break from the realities of life, Dubuque can take you there.
Rethink and rediscover Dubuque. It's the ultimate vacation, reinvented.
