Day 1 – Home to Dubuque, IA 

As we make our way to Dubuque, we will first stop at the Field of Dreams movie site where we’ll walk around, take pictures, and spend some time with one of the original ghost players. After checking into the hotel, a welcome dinner is served at the Moracco Supper Club. 

Included Meals: Dinner 

Hotel: Holiday Inn Express 


Day 2 – Dubuque – Cruising to LeClaire, IA 

Our excitement for the day builds as we enjoy breakfast at the hotel. First we will visit the beautiful Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, a nonprofit organization, that was established in 1980. The 57-acre campus is maintained 100% by volunteers. Their labor of love has created a living museum that symbolizes devotion to the growing things of the earth. Their mission is to establish, preserve, and maintain a place that is a source of information, education, culture, and beauty for all. Then we will spend a special day aboard the Riverboat Twilight. This all-day cruise heads south from Dubuque, allowing us to experience towering bluffs, two Locks & Dams, and quaint river towns along the beautiful Mississippi River. Our cruise includes a full lunch, snacks, and dinner as well as historical narration by our captain who has been piloting riverboats for 30 years on the Upper Mississippi River. Anticipate great scenery, eagles and other migratory birds, more relaxation than you have allowed yourself in years, plus live entertainment by local favorite LA Suess on banjo! With plenty of indoor & outdoor seating, settle into a sturdy teak rocker or an inviting deck chair & enjoy!

Day 3 – LeClaire to Fort Atkinson, WI 

Enjoy an included full breakfast at the hotel before we make our way to Antique Archeology. You may be familiar…this two-story former fabrication shop is the home base for the American Pickers Show on the History Channel. It now houses some of their best picks and a new merchandise store. Then we’ll cut northeast across Illinois, stopping in Rockford for an included lunch. Mid-afternoon we will check into the Holiday Inn Express in Ft. Atkinson and enjoy their Welcome Reception. Then after freshening up, get ready for a wonderful buffet dinner and show at the Fireside Dinner Theatre. Prepare yourselves for some laughs as we’re seeing “Nunsense!” It all begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, has accidently poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon!
