About this event
This year's Fall Colors Tour will start at the Meskwaki Casino parking lot in Tama, go through the Oelwein area at lunchtime, and overnight in Dubuque. We'll meet at the casino parking lot between 9:30 and 9:45 AM for the signing of waivers and drivers meeting, with departure at 10.
The route will include a number of scenic points of interest, and with luck some gorgeous fall colors, as we wind our way through northeast Iowa and a bit of Illinois. Saturday night's dinner is in a reserved room at Timmerman's, on the east side of the Mississippi. Sunday morning will bring another scenic drive down the river before we all break away and head for home.
We do not have a room block; participants are free to use whatever lodging suits their styles and budgets. We recommend getting reservations as early as possible, since the northeast Iowa area gets heavy tourist demand in the fall.
