They were more that just helpful, they came up with things to do in the tri-state area bordering on the Mississippi. We were loaded down with maps and tours and restaurants and shops. Had a great time just visiting with the welcome center.

Fabulous historic building worth seeing. Impeccable maintained and so fortunate that it remains a vital part of the community. I appreciate that some parts of our country do not tear down these historic buildings with so much craftsmanship.

Nice little spot right downtown. Nothing fancy but all the information you need for Dubuque and surrounding areas all in one spot. Souvenirs available too.

Extremely friendly and nice. The girl helped with lots of suggestions and explanations for things in and around town. But then it is Iowa, so I expect the Midwest hospitality!

The woman working was on the phone getting her report on vacancies for the weekend. She snarled at us to notify her if we needed any help. No greeting, no where are you from, no what are you wanting to do/see, nothing. Help yourselves to some brochures. The least welcoming welcome center I've been to!

We just stopped in here with a few questions and this girl who was all of 20 years old helped as much as she could and did not want to stop until she had all the answers she could get for us! Happy we popped in with a few questions!

I traveled to Dubuque with my husband and friends from Germany. The young lady in the Welcome Center was very helpful with giving ideas where to go in the area. They also have so many brochures where you can get ideas from. Some of their souvenirs are nice, too. A good place to stop and get ideas if you are... More
