If Thanksgiving is the tradition that brings on the Holiday season, then surely the opening of Sundown Mountain Ski Resort in Asbury, just west of Dubuque, brings on the season of outdoor winter sports. For nearly 40 years, Sundown has been providing the Dubuque area with entertaining outdoor activities that you just don't find in many communities in Iowa or the region. Along with the rolling hills, bluffs and the mighty Mississippi River, which we all take for granted, it's just one more way Dubuquers are spoiled with great amenities… and loving it!
Murphy Park (1700 South Grandview Ave.)
For nearly two decades, Tri-State families have enjoyed what has become an annual holiday tradition – a drive through Louis Murphy Park just off South Grandview to see the bright lights of Reflections In The Park. Begun in 1995 as a fundraiser for Hillcrest Family Services, Reflections In The Park has become, for many families, an activity essential to the holiday season.

For many, Thanksgiving is a time when we get together with our families, share a meal and probably eat a bit too much. But for some, because of work, because the distance is too great to travel or maybe there is no one with which to share, Thanksgiving can be an especially lonely day. It was for these people that Donna Ginter began sharing her Thanksgiving more than 50 years ago.

We believe that people who say, “there’s nowhere to shop for clothes in Dubuque,” really aren’t trying vey hard.
With the continued growth of major retailers, like Kohl’s and T.J.Maxx coming into the community and a roster of existing major brand “box stores,” if you will, you’d think there would be enough selection to please most people. Clearly, we all find things at these places. They have big selections, long hours, often low prices and here and there, decent and knowledgable customer service. Let’s run down a list of the big ones. There’s the really big players, JCPenny, Younkers, K-Mart, Target, Shopko, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and T.J.Maxx. Then there are the national chains who usually focus almost entirely on clothing and accessories. You’ll find them throughout Kennedy Mall as well as Asbury Plaza; Aeropostale, The Buckle, Vanity, C J Banks, Gap, American Eagle, Maurices and Dress Barn. But like any segmented market, they’ll never be all things to all people. By no means are they bad. They’re great and the selection is always a good thing. But there is another tier that deserves your attention.
