"Low Cost of Living -- But You'll Pay for That"
Dubuque is a liberal, Catholic, working class town, for the most part. It definitely has all the basics, yoga studios, a few good places to eat, a mall, but it all stops about there. It's good place to raise a family but being single is a challenge. It's hard to find people that are like minded if you are well educated. I've had a few weird run-ins with neighbors because I parked on the street in front of their house etc. There are different social skills between the socio-economic classes, and It's not uncommon for there to be some conflict.
