We stopped here on our way to a bed and breakfast for the weekend. We were able to walk the main area in about 10 minutes. We stopped in one store and generally did not feel the need to go back during our stay. Cute...More
It has survived tornados and the worst Mother Nature has to offer. Yet it survives and thrives in tribute to it's great location and history. The buildings alone are enough to entice your visit. But just peek inside and you will see why this is...More
I’m from across the river in Prairie du Chien, but have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for the last 20 years. I call myself a food snob, and am always needing to drop my expectations when I visit home.
No More, I say,...More
We happened upon this community and had a nice time walking the downtown area. We found some interesting facts about the town, including that the Ringling Brothers of circus fame lived here for a time. We ate at the Backwoods BBQ and the portions were...More
This is a very lovely quaint town to browse and shop. We were there just 2 weeks after a tornado hit them and was quit sad to see all the downed trees and damage that had been done. I really felt for the community and...More
This adorable 1800s town did not disappoint we loved looking at the old architecture cobblestone street and the weird house in the side of a mountain... not even sure what that is about but it was cool.
A walk around McGregor is like being in a living museum. The buildings are so old and are lined up on a long street. I had trouble figuring out how to get onto the Highway 18 bridge to go over the Mississippi to visit Prairie...More
Located in a valley abutting the Mississippi River this is not what you would expect in Iowa. From specialty and antique shops to a gourmet grocery and a mile from one of the last River Boat Casinos on the Northern Mississippi, a great destination. BUT...More
This town has so much history, and lots of fun and interesting shops to check out, plus many great food, beverage and snack (ice cream!) spots to sample. If you're in the area, be sure to spend a half day checking it out, or take...More

McGregor is a small Iowa town of about 1000 people with only a few businesses. The casino and the new hotel would be open 24 hours a day. The other small businesses may not be open at all in Sunday nor during the winter months when tourism is down to a low level. You can drive across the Mississippi River on the big bridge and look in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, which is a larger town with more franchise 24/7 businesses like McDonalds. If you are interested in a particular business in McGregor, then look on Google to see if it has a listing with its hours of operation. Many small businesses now have a web page.
