One of the 10 Best Riverwalk in the US is in a Iowa
If you are looking for a weekend getaway this Summer you need to put the Riverwalk from this small Iowa town on your list, it was voted one of the 10 Best in the USA in 2022.
According to the website 10best.com, the Riverwalk in Dubuque, Iowa is deserving as being recognized as one of the 10 Best Riverwalks in the US in 2022. The riverwalk in Dubuque comes in at number 9 on the list, behind some iconic riverwalks like the San Antonio riverwalk coming in at 5th on the list, and the first place ranked Detroit International Riverwalk. In the article, they say this about the Dubuque riverwalk...
"The Mississippi Riverwalk in Dubuque makes up part of the 26-mile Heritage Trail, which links the Mississippi River to the Field of Dreams site in Dyersville. The Art on the River exhibit features 11 pieces of public art that rotate each year."

I wanted to learn more about what the Dubuque riverwalk had to offer so I found this awesome YouTube video that takes you on a tour of the riverwalk.
If you have no idea where Dubuque, Iowa is, it is located on the Mississippi River right where Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin all meet. It would be the perfect day trip getaway this weekend considering it is only about 175 miles north of Quincy, IL and you can drive there in about 3 and a half hours. I will say the riverwalk must be nice if it is voted ahead of the Chicago Riverwalk, which in my opinion is the best downtown riverwalk in the whole of the United States.
