A fun place to stay!
Casino across the street (I don't gamble), lots of historic places to visit in this rivertown, and a good MI, NUHusker is nearby to share ideas and places to visit.
OK...I'll bite..what made you go to Burlington, Iowa???
I work in the Mid-West of the US, doing programs like "Antique Road Show", and I really enjoy the area.
Burlington, Iowa is just one of many enjoyable places, and yes, they have a popular casino, ( I have dined, but not gambled, and I have nothing against gambling, I just don't do it).
Iowa, is a most enjoyable place and I just wish I could visit more.
Wow...sound like a place to visit!!!
Thanks JC...I'll keep it in mind.
Never knew they had gambling casinos in Iowa! Guess I need to get out more.......
There are a lot of casino's in Iowa, many are on Iowa's borders and they attract large crowds from adjoining states. John Wayne is a famous Iowan!
The reason for the casinos on the borders is an old law that required them to be floating casinos. Now there are plenty that are landlocked and spread throughout the state. Bob Feller is another famous Iowan.
Thanks for the Bob Feller information, he was one of the finest pitchers in baseball.
Thanks for the reminder about what the casino's are on borders, I had totally forgot that bit of information.
It's kind of interesting about the border casinos, most of which are on the border rivers...on the west side you'll find the majority of license plates in the parking lots of the three Council Bluffs casinos from Nebraska's three largest counties. The Sioux City casino and others in northwest Iowa get a lot of South Dakota traffic. And on the Mississippi River side, most of the traffic is from Illinois. Bob Feller was from Van Meter, Iowa (not too far from Winterset where John Wayne was born) and there's a museum in Van Meter about his baseball career. Pretty interesting for baseball fans. Us midwesterners are pretty easy to please.
