"Welcome to Iowa and to Burlington"
Burlington is located in the extreme southeast corner of Iowa, on the western bank of the mighty Mississippi River. Highway 34 is the main east-west route through town, and highway 61 goes north and south but is located just a few miles west of town.
"BRIDGE TO SOMEWHERE"
THIS IS the graceful suspension bridge that took us over the Mississippi River from Illinois into Iowa.
