12 Unforgettable Iowa Day Trips, One For Each Month Of The Year

There’s so much to do in the Hawkeye State, and unlike a big part of the country, we actually get four distinct seasons to enjoy. That means we can plan winter adventures, spring day trips, summer vacations, and fall excursions! If you’re looking for a list of things to do in Iowa by month, use the following guide to fill up your calendar for the best year yet.

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
