Here Are 10 Words You’ll Only Understand If You’re From Iowa

If you’re an Iowan, you’re used to out-of-towners giving you confused, somewhat concerned looks when you say things like “cornhole” and “padiddle” during a normal conversation. We Iowans know we say some strange things, but they make sense to us, so here are ten words that only Iowans will understand.

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/
