Burlington Travel Guide
Welcome to Burlington, IA!
Situated beside the Mississippi River on the Iowa-Illinois state line, Burlington is a small city with plenty to offer visitors. Families enjoy passing time at FunCity—a resort containing Hucks Harbor waterpark, King Pins bowling alley, Spirit Hollow golf course and many other fun-filled areas. In the center of FunCity is the Best Western Pzazz FunCity Hotel, which offers many stay-and-play packages. Burlington also boasts a rich heritage that dates back to the mid-1800s. One of the most recognizable historic landmarks is Snake Alley, which was built in 1894 as a shortcut from Heritage Hill to the business area. Dropping 58 ft (18 m) in a short distance, early engineers added angled bricks to help horses descend the twisty road. While in Burlington, Geode State Park is worth the short drive, as it is an ideal place to partake in watersports, camp, hike and view crystallized geode rocks.
Snake Alley is one of Burlington's landmark attractions.
