Live, Work & Play
Monticello is a thriving community that is big on charm and conveniently located between Cedar Rapids and Dubuque. Our community offers a host of choices for restaurants, shopping, and recreational fun. The Maquoketa River is close by for canoeing, tubing, swimming, and fishing. The Baty Disc Golf Course is right next to the downtown area. The Monticello Golf Club is home to a nine-hole golf course and clubhouse. Campgrounds, including the Blue Inn Campground and Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park, offer abundant spots to round out an active day or weekend. If relaxation is in order, stroll through the beautiful Riverside Gardens, rest and enjoy the downtown pocket park with free wi-fi, spend a night at the Cobblestone Inn & Suites. Annual events in Monticello include the Uptown Summer Nites in the Pocket Park Music Series, the summer-long Farmers Market, Fourth of July Parade and festivities, the “Five Best Days of Summer” (the Great Jones County Fair), the Monticello Airport Fly-in Breakfast and Monti Days, to name a few! Monticello is the place to live, work, eat, shop, and play!
