The Fascinating Town In Iowa That Is Straight Out Of A Fairy Tale

Just off of Highway 163, about an hour southeast of Des Moines, is the charming Dutch-inspired town of Pella. A little over 10,000 people call Pella, Iowa home.

This fascinating town offers visitors a taste of Holland. Windmills, Dutch letters, a “Tulip Time” festival each spring, and a real canal are just a few of the fairytale-like elements of this amazing Iowa town.
