Fall Colors by Kathys Drive – October 20 & 21

Destination:  Dubuque IA / Galena, IL

Mark your calendars now for a fall colors drive to eastern Iowa featuring international waypoints, lunch enroute and Saturday evening dinner at Brazen Open Kitchen & Bar in Dubuque.  We’ll start from the Bass Pro Parking lot under the water tower in Altoona at 8:00 am IS NOW:   McDonald’s parking lot in Altoona directly across the street from Adventureland Inn (3215 Adventureland Drive) at 8:00 am and will publish the lunch location (McOtto’s Family Restaurant, Intersection of Hwy 151 & Hwy 64 at Anamosa; Exit #54) so those outside Des Moines can join us there.   Sunday morning will be a short journey from Dubuque to Galena for all the time you wish to explore/shop.

Route “home” will take us south along the Iowa side of the Great River Road but attendees are “free” to boogie home on their own schedule / route.

Fall Colors is prime touring time and hotels book early.  We have a block of 10 rooms at Hotel Julien reserved under BMW Car Club of Iowa.  You need to call to book a room. The block expires on September 5, 2018.  You are welcome to try and find other lodging but it can be difficult this time of year in Dubuque.
