Here’s The Perfect Weekend Itinerary If You Love Exploring Iowa’s Waterfalls

We may not be known for our magnificent waterfalls, but Iowa still has a few beautiful little falls hiding across the state! We’ve put together an easy going weekend waterfall trip to guide you to some of Iowa’s most beautiful spillways and give you plenty of time to explore each one! This trip begins in Des Moines; however, it is a loop route, so you can jump in at any point to make your way to Iowa’s waterfalls!

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:

Are you itching to get on the road yet? We can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can see all of these stunning falls in full glory! We built a Waterfall Weekend Map with turn-by-turn directions to guide you along on this adventure. Have fun!
