What it’s Like to Live in Peosta, Iowa: 

We’re located in Peosta Iowa, about 15 minutes from the city of Dubuque, Iowa, and only 20 minutes from the Mississippi River. While Peosta sits on the edge of suburban and rural, Dubuque has a lot of big-city attractions with the charm of a smaller town. With the booming art and social scene, the greater Dubuque area offers plenty of coffee shops, hiking trails, and cultural attractions. Dubuque is located in the tri-state area of Wisconsin and Illinois. Madison, WI is only a 90-minute drive and Chicago is just shy of 3 hours. With several major cities nearby, Crossroads Church Peosta is located in a prime location that gives you the best combination of rural, suburban, and urban destinations.

North Eastern Iowa is home to some fantastic attractions. The historic Field of Dreams is only about 20 minutes away from Peosta. Likewise, just a few minutes north of Peosta you can find Sundown Mountain Resort. The skiing resort has amenities that are geared for the serious skier and families alike. Outdoorsmen can chase some of the best whitetail deer hunting in the country, as well as enjoy fishing on the waters of the Mississippi. There is no doubt that Peosta is growing. Houses are practically popping out of the ground, and new restaurants are opening as we speak. This young community revolves around the community center (where Crossroads meets for worship) as state-of-the-art ballfields and parks provide lots of activities for families of all types. Whether you’re a bit trendy and looking for culture or a bit outdoorsy, there is something for everyone here.
