Threading north along a 25-mile portion of the Great River between Dubuque, IA and Saint Paul, MN the drive connects one charming river town to another. Identified by a road sign symbolic of a pilot's wheel, the winding route offers many opportunities to experience the heritage left by early settlers, to watch the sun melt into the Mississippi River, and to rejoice in the handiwork of Mother Nature.
