History Comes To Life In This Iowa Town That Seems Frozen In Time

Iowa is home to several notable historic towns. From the first town in the state (Dubuque) to one of the oldest capital cities in the Midwest (Des Moines), we’ve got so much to show off! One tiny city gets overlooked in the shadow of the larger towns nearby, but if you’re a history buff, you’ll love a trip to Burlington, Iowa.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
