The lady working here the day we visited was very helpful, honest, and humorous. Obviously, plenty of brochures for Dubuque and surrounding areas and interesting souvenirs.

We were drifting down to Branson from Wisconsin Dells and stopped in Dubuque to look for geocaches. The ladies at the welcome were really friendly and upbeat. Made us want to return for a longer visit :-)

This is definitely a stand out building , you literally cannot miss it. It was apparently the courthouse for Dubuque County originally. It's awesome and well preserved.

Very helpful - from wine to chocolates to t-shirt - as well as places to visit can be found at the Dubuque Welcome Center. Purchased sweatshirts for family members who wear them in Houston, TX

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!
