Dubuque ranked #12 on ‘30 Best Small Cities in the U.S.’ List

Alot Travel, an online travel information source that describes itself as offering “cultivated insights from travel professionals and wanderlust enthusiasts,” recently compiled its list of the “30 Best Small Cities in the United States.”  Dubuque was ranked #12 and was the only Midwestern city in the top 20 and one of just two Iowa cities to make the list.

In describing the list, Alot Travel said, “Big, crowded cities don’t have a monopoly on cultural offerings. If you’re looking to visit (or move to) a place that flows to a slower pace and has a lower cost of living, these towns under 100,000 residents still have plenty to cool things to do.”

Dubuque’s profile for the list said, “Dubuque sits on the Mississippi River at the tri-state juncture of Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin. While a longtime farming and manufacturing community (a Deere & Company factory is nearby), the city’s economy has expanded rapidly in the 2000s.  Historic Old Main retains some of the city’s significant Victorian brick architecture, and the Fenelon Place Elevator scales a hill to offer expansive views.”
