Visit Iowa’s Old Fashioned Rodeo For An Experience You Won’t Forget

Way back before Iowa’s roads were paved and tall buildings created our city skylines, our rural state was even more wild. To help settle the prairie, cowboys moved out west and helped establish their farms. These western folk are the people that helped Iowa flourish as a state, and every year, the Cherokee Rodeo gathers to celebrate our cowboy heritage.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
