Dip Your Toes In Blue Heron Lake When You Visit Iowa’s Raccoon River Park
Iowa is a long way from the ocean, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the sandy fun they have on the coast! Check out one of the best beaches in Iowa just outside of Des Moines, where you’ll find miles of trails, a gorgeous park, a sprawling lake, and a stretch of sand that will make you forget about living in a landlocked state.
