Dubuque is nestled along the Mississippi River and is where the states of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin all converge. It’s just a short trip to such cities as Madison, Chicago, Des Moines, and the Quad Cities.
Dubuque was the first town established in Iowa and it's the eighth largest city in the state. It’s named after a French Canadian fur trader who received permission from area Indians to mine lead. Julien Dubuque moved to the area in 1788 and would spend the rest of his life here. The Julien Dubuque monument, where he is buried, is among the city’s most popular attractions.
In addition to being named an All-America City, Dubuque has also been named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People, an Iowa Great Place, and one of the smartest Cities on the Planet.
