We had a fun, relaxing time aboard the Twilight for a 2 day cruise. I can’t say enough good things about this boat and her crew. The 2 day package included 3 meals and 2 snacks the first day, 3 meals (breakfast in the overnight hotel) and a snack on the second day. On the second day, a shuttle is provided to the attractions in Dubuque and you have plenty of time to see them before boarding before lunch. We had perfect weather and sat outside on the decks most of the time. Inclement weather would have kept us indoors, which we would not have enjoyed as thoroughly. Both afternoons, there was good musical entertainment. The food was all homemade and delicious. There is a bar on the upper deck (soda and alcohol not included in the package). We highly recommend. One caveat-if you have mobility issues, the stairs may be problematic. Bathrooms are located only on the first level, and there is seating on all 3 levels. If you can’t climb stairs, this would be difficult. Request seating on the first floor and you will be fine-just be sure to do this when you reserve.

Mississippi River Distilling Company & Cody Road Cocktail House

LeClaire, Iowa. It's a special place. A place where life on the land is intimately married to the flow of the waters. For centuries, people here have looked to the water for a sense of calm, a spirit of enjoyment and a connection to a heritage that is uniquely their own.That marriage of land and water is now embodied in a different kind of spirit. The Mississippi River Distilling Company hand craft Vodka, Gin, Whiskey, and Specialty Spirits slow and pure near the banks of the Mississippi River. Born from the finest grains, harvested just up the hill from the distillery. It’s a spirit born of land and water that draws each of us curiously back to a different era. Made for you, not for for the masses.

What a cool place! Very nice inside and excellent staff! Frankie was a great bartender. Super drinks and very friendly. Take the tour. Very neat to find out how truly local this place is.

Sampled several of their spirits. All very good. Their drink menu is expansive and everything we had was truly mixology. Very high quality.

A neat stop that sets itself apart from other local attractions. Make it a must do if you’re in town!

Very good wine, I liked the Felony Red. My wife loved the white White Collar Crime. The Pursuit of Happiness with the chocolate is really unique. Great atmosphere, wonderful patio. Nice people. Not pushy.

Buffalo Bill Museum

Reviewed By ontheroadagain928 - Palos Hills, Illinois

This museum is worth visiting, especially if you want to learn about the LeClaire area and the accomplishments of the people who were the earlier settlers in this area. In addition to a lot of information regarding Buffalo Bill Cody, there were exhibits showing inventions by several residents of the town, including one documenting the inventor of the flight recorder. Many of the items were donated to the museum by local residents or descendants of early settlers in the area. The admission of $5.00 is nominal and helps keep the museum running. Mike Wolfe (American Picker) donated a tee pee he found on a pick to the museum. He does try to unite items with the person or place they belong.

Reviewed By ontheroadagain928 - Palos Hills, Illinois

This shop was fun to explore. They had many items covering a variety of interests. I was able to find some funny printed dish towels as souveniers for under $5.00. There were Andy Griffith trading cards, knick knacks, tee shirts, toys, and lots of novelties as well. The staff is friendly and helpful as well. I recommend it as a place to visit when in town.

Antique Archeology

Reviewed By lanceo53

The next time you are cruising along Interstate Highway 80 in eastern Iowa, be sure to take a little side trip to Le Claire...it's only about 2 to 3 miles north of the interstate, and of course, the home of Antique Archeology...that's right, the place where Mike and Frank started it all...the TV show "American Pickers". 'Nuff said, right ???

So if you like this sort of thing, then you absolutely have to take a visit...and for sure, the journey is well worth. The boys have grown from their original garage building, and have added another larger retail building, and the footprint of their property has been revamped very nicely.

The buildings indeed are filled with their finds and discoveries from their many journeys and trips going after that rusty gold. So it is really neat browsing through everything !!!

And of course all sorts of goodies advertising Antique Archeology are available for sale...caps, t-shirts, cups/mugs, etc, etc.

Happy Picking !!!

Green Tree Brewery

Reviewed By beentheredonethatia - Davenport, Iowa

No one told us about the punch cards. Saw others using it and asked. Very disappointed that flights don't count. Stopped by on First Friday. Food truck outside which was cool. Place was packed. Taylor did a nice job taking care of us. Lots of beer choices, good ones. Great view. Men's bathroom urinal made out of a keg, too funny. Lots of swag but it is very pricey. Popular place, sold out of their mugs immediately. And the membership is $65!
