Take me back to…Dubuque

4thElevator2.jpgThis old Mississippi River town – Iowa’s oldest city – has long been one of our favorite places to visit in Iowa but I realize as I’m writing a travel story on Iowa that my Dubuque knowledge is a little rusty. There are so much revitalization going on it’s hard to keep up with all the hotspots designated as historic districts. I’ve heard tell about the majorly restored Julien Hotel – although it’s hard to think about staying anywhere other than a beautiful inn in a restored Victorian mansion (our usual is The Redstone) and I’ve also heard about a bunch of restaurants along Main Street, namely L. May Eatery and Pepper Sprout. I’d also love to return to the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium which I think has expanded since I was last there.   And I never miss a chance to ride the charming Fenelon Place Elevator downtown (see photo above)!
