The Great Iowa Road Trip That Will Make Your Summer Unforgettable

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.

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:
