One National Park in Iowa, at Marquette IOWA BECKONS NO; 15— DUBUQUE The City of Dubuque, one of Iowa's prime historic and scenic spots, is also a gateway to a wide area of attractions for Iowans and out-of-state visitors. Nickel Ride In Dubuque and environs are such sights as the monument marking the place where Julien Dubuque, Iowa's first permanent white settler, was buried in 1910; the seven towering hills of Dubuque itself, the old Shot Tower of Civil War days, and the Fourth Street Elevator where the fee for a ride on this interesting contrivance is still a nickel. For. fishermen, Dubuqucland of- j fers anglers from three states I such piscatorial resources as trout streams of northeast Iowa, southwest Wisconsin and north-; west Illinois, plus the Mississippi < Biver itself which boasts bass, crappies. catfish, bluegills, walleyes, perch and other finny varieties. Scenic Views ] Roth by boat and by car, the 1 Dubuque area offers many lovely scenic views along the Mississippi plus side excursions to such towns as Spechts Ferry, Waupeton and North Buena Vista. Along the i ridges through Balltown and Holy; Cross in Dubuque County, lush landscapes unfold in pastoral checked fields before the land falls away in undulating hills toward the river. Hartwick Lake Some 50 miles from Dubuque is Hartwick Lake at Delhi with 1,100 acres encompased in its 11-mile length. There are 200 private col- tages for visitors. For those who like to go underground there is Maquoketa Caves State Park, 33 miles south of Dubuque, which the Indians used as a hideout years ago. North of Dubuque, in Clayton County, is Guttenberg—a fisherman's haven with all necessary facilities and then some. The town is approached, from north and south, over giant hills which provide one of the finest river panorama's in the midwest. Still farther north is the McGregor-Marquette area, sometimes given the name of "America's Alps." The scene is always beautiful but perhaps best in autumn when the trees throw a mantle of color over the hills. Caves, museums, parks, peaks, and river recreation are among other attractions. Only Natural Park Three miles beyond Marquette is Effigy Mounds National Monument—the only national park in Iowa.
