Welcome to Iowa

Traditional prairie pioneer cultural influences remain strong in the Midwestern U.S. state of Iowa. Bounded by the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers on the east and west, Iowa is known for gently rolling plains and endless cornfields. Des Moines, the capital, is a classic university town with an abundance of arts, entertainment, and fine dining options. The Bridges of Madison County and a traditional Dutch tulip blossom festival are highlight attractions in South-Central Iowa. Mason City is home to the Park Inn, the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright-designed hotel building. Active pursuits in the state include boating or jet skiing in the Lakes Region, whitewater trips, river floats, and winter snow sports.
