One of the features Dubuque offers her inhabitants as well as her tourists is a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city’s downtown area. At an unhurried pace passengers are treated to historical tidbits about Dubuque. Visitors are advised to partake of this attraction as it gives an interesting insight to Dubuque and its roots. Advice to residents is to partake as well. Driving around Dubuque is a great idea, but taking a leisurely ride gives one a different view ergo a different perspective of the place we call home.
