Take This Epic Road Trip To Experience Iowa’s Great Outdoors

If you were to ask someone from out-of-state, they might try to tell you that Iowa is flat, boring and only prairie. Luckily, us Iowans know that’s not true, and that some amazing sights are hidden in Iowa’s great outdoors. Plan a long weekend to see some of the best of Eastern Iowa, along the Mississippi River and into our best State Parks.

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Of course, if you’d rather camp in the parks than live it up in a Dubuque or Davenport hotel, you can certainly do that! Information about camping in Iowa State Parks can be found right here. Enjoy your time getting to know nature in the Hawkeye State!
