Port of Dubuque
Nestled in the limestone bluffs along the mighty Mississippi River, the charming, picturesque town of Dubuque is filled with natural beauty, varied culture and rich history. Colorful, gingerbread Victorian mansions dot the bluffs, soaring bald eagles provide unique bird watching, and winding roads and rolling hills offer wonderful hiking, biking and outdoor recreation.
Beautiful sights aren't the only attraction in Dubuque. Dip your toes in the world-renowned Mississippi River and ride an authentic paddleboat. Tour museums, historical sites and National Landmarks, hit the jackpot at state-of-the-art casinos, or stroll historic downtown for antiques and gifts. Recreation opportunities include hiking and biking historic trails along the river, downhill or cross-country skiing, plus run the bases at the Field of Dreams Movie Site.
From quaint bed & breakfast inns to world class resort and full-service hotel accommodations, you can finish the day with a restful night's sleep in one of Dubuque's 30 hotels, 19 bed and breakfast inns and a host of campgrounds. Dubuque is also home to a variety of campgrounds.
