Built In 1894, Iowa’s Snake Alley Is The Crookedest Road In The World

Iowa roads are known for being straight. By and large, the roads around the state are laid out in a practical, functional, easily navigable grid. Isn’t it ironic, then, that straight-laced Iowa is home to the most crooked road in the world?

If Snake Alley brings you to the historic south-eastern Iowa town of Burlington, the county seat of Des Moines County since 1838, consider swinging by the Garrett-Phelps House Museum located alongside Snake Alley or bring your young at heart to the Des Moines County Heritage Center Museum. One thing is for sure, after heading home from Snake Alley no road will seem quite as crooked as before.
