You’ll Never Want to Leave the Little Switzerland Of Iowa

Since the 50s, the northeastern Iowa towns of Luxemburg, Guttenburg, Elkader, Garnavillo, Lansing, and McGregor have been affectionately called Iowa’s little Switzerland.

There’s plenty to do in the area if you are interested in scenery, architecture, wildlife, and history.

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:
