Amid the hustle and bustle of summer, it can be tempting to get away from it all. If you don’t want to commit to an extended camping trip, why not go for a peaceful drive along the Iowa backroads? Iowa has many crowded highways, but Iowa Highway 4 is a different breed. Along the way, you’ll encounter beautiful small towns, but you’ll rarely see any other cars on this quiet road. It’s often called Iowa’s loneliest road – in the best way possible. As you cruise down the road, you’ll be able to appreciate the Hawkeye State like never before.
