The Historic Small Town That Every Iowan Should Visit At Least Once

Iowa is full of historic towns that were established even before the state itself! The history of settlement along the mighty Mississippi created plenty of quaint towns along the water, but Dubuque, Iowa might be the most charming of them all.
