Escape to the Unexpected.

A trip to Iowa is an escape to the unexpected.

Time for a road trip in the heart of America – Iowa. Cruising from town to town, palate-pleasing dishes and perspective-shaping museums will lure you in. Whether you’re climbing the state’s highest cliffs or crawling through its earth-sunken caves, an unexpected adventure awaits. An hour or two simply won’t be enough time for this excellent excursion. Once you visit Iowa, you’ll be hooked for days. 

From coast to coast, Mississippi River to Missouri River that is, you’ll find small delights and great wonders to occupy your time. As you start in the east at the Maquoketa Caves, explore the 1,100-foot Dancehall Cave and see the 17-ton Balanced Rock. In central Iowa, take a tour of the Bridges of Madison County, where iconic America comes to life. Then head west to bike the beautiful Wabash Trace Nature Trail that courses 63 miles through the scenic southwest Iowa countryside. Western Iowa also showcases the Loess Hills, a unique geographic formation found nowhere else in North America. Choose to hike in to the bluffs for a rugged camping experience or stick to the main thoroughfares where the 220-mile Loess Hills National Scenic Byway is dotted with wineries, specialty farms and workshops of local craftspeople. 

Whether venturing through Iowa’s parks, trails and waterways or discovering a local community filled with history and charm, you’ll embrace each unique Iowa memory. Take a deep breath, your ultimate Iowa road trip is about to begin.
