This is a very interesting sight to visit when in Burlington. Very well taken care of with beautiful flowers. There is a nice plaque with information on the sight.

Over Memorial weekend there is bike races up this neat alley. So fun to drive down. The last Sunday during Steamboat Day there is an art fair. Come and enjoy this little bit of Burlington, Iowa

It's a short, little snaky alley, but it sure is snaky and quaint. The bricks are cool. Glad we did it! Wouldn't want to do it in the winter!

A winding downhill brick street dubbed as the curviest street in the world, it is a must see when in Burlington.
