We’re off and running this summer…for a two-day getaway to DuBuque, Iowa!
AUGUST 8: We’ll arrive in time to depart for an excursion lunch cruise on the mighty Mississippi, then enjoy the Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium before we’re off to the races at the Iowa Greyhound Park! We’ll be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Q Casino, where we’ll dine after the races, and play at your leisure for the evening.
AUGUST 9: Our morning starts off with a visit to the Our Lady Of The Mississippi Abbey, where we’ll enjoy a tour and sample their hand-made caramels and chocolates. Then it’s off to Convivium Urban Farmstead for a tour of their famous hydroponics system and a bountiful, fresh lunch.
We then take a ride at the Fenelon Place Elevator—the shortest, steepest railway in the world—and enjoy a tri-state view at the top. In the trolley district, we’ll enjoy the local boutiques, sweets, and more.
Our final stop before heading home—Stone Cliff—one of DuBuque’s premier wineries for tasting and toasting.
