Dubuque Is a Cool Frontier Town

I had seen Dubuque featured in a few magazines about the Old West, so I decided to buy tickets for myself and my boyfriend to go check it out this summer. We share a passion for the history of the American frontier, so he was very excited to hear that I had bought tickets for both of us for Dubuque. Our tickets were with American Eagle, who provides a very high quality of service on tickets out of Chicago to Dubuque. In Dubuque we bought tickets to the history museum and learned all about the history of Dubuque. We also bought tour tickets that took us around to a few of the old frontier buildings that are still standing in Dubuque.
