Nestled in the bluffs of the Mississippi River in northeast Iowa, Marquette welcomes you to an area known as “Iowa’s Best Kept Secret.” Named in honor of Father Marquette, who along with Louis Joliet explored the upper Mississippi River, Marquette is truly a destination for all seasons.
The city offers boating, a fishing pier with handicap access, numerous parks for hiking and camping, antique shops, an award-winning winery, quality lodging and the Lady Luck Casino. Special events include flea markets, Railroad Days and weekly events at the Driftless Area Wetlands Centre. Come spend a relaxing day, night or week with us!
