The famous U.S. Route 6 is 3,652 miles long. It starts in Long Beach, California and goes through 14 states to Provincetown, Massachusetts. Our Great Iowa Road Trip is the Iowa-Only portion of Route 6. It starts in Council Bluffs at the Missouri River and goes across the middle of the state to Davenport, on the Mississippi River. You could just as easily drive it from Davenport to Council Bluffs, of course.
