Fly High in Dubuque

Start your summer on a high note with a zip line through the woodsy terrain northwest of Dubuque.

Strap on a harness and zip through the scenic Mississippi River bluffs with Sky Tours at YMCA Union Park Camp northwest of Dubuque. The park features nine zip lines that stretch up to 1,000 feet. The course starts out easy for first-timers—with zips called “bunny” and “rabbit run.”

A highlight is “The Duel,” billed as the first double-layere
d line in the Midwest. Expect lots of thrills during the two-hour guided tours. Plus, there’s a 360-degree lookout tower to enjoy all the greenery.
