Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens – Come Grow With Us!

8-5-14

We discovered most big cities to the small towns we have visited  have at least one public garden for the public to enjoy. Dubuque is no exception. The Dubuque Museum and Botanical Gardens is quite beautiful in mid-summer and was well worth the visit.

Be sure to stop in the Visitor Center for a map of the huge grounds. You could easily spend the day here. They also have apparel and souveniers.

We had a wonderful visit here. Could not see it all this time but perhaps on a return visit we can see the rest.
