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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: 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!
