"The Eagle Has Landed" Dubuque by where2next

Dubuque Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 146 photos

I stopped in Dubuque on my way between Cedar Rapids and Wisconsin. The person at the tourist info desk recommended seeing the eagles near the lock. Upon arriving, I was very surprised to see many Bald Eagles. She said that they gather in this particular area because there is open water (i.e. not covered by ice). Several eagles flew over the open water looking for fish though I did not see any dive in. So if your in the area during the winter, bring your binoculars and check them out.

The downtown area has a couple cool buildings.

The tourism person mentioned that Irish and Germans had first settled here. It's perhaps hard to see though the house on the bluff has an German-like architecture style.
