Dubuque is blessed to have limestone bluffs that go on for miles and in the fall, these vistas turn every vibrant shade of autumn imaginable. Peak color usually takes place the weekend closest to October 10. Stroll through Iowa’s longest-running Farmers’ Market, go pumpkin pickin’ at local farms, sip on a pumpkin spice latte, brew, or glass of wine.
