Iowa has a rich agricultural heritage, but there is a lot more to see in the Hawkeye State than farming.
Des Moines, the state capital, is the geographical and cultural center. Visitors can enjoy Blank Park Zoo, the botanical center, the Iowa Cubs AAA baseball team, an art center and a symphony.
Nearby is Winterset, the seat of famous Madison County. Enjoy the county’s wonderful covered bridges, as well as a tour of the home in which Hollywood legend John Wayne was born.
