Come Work And Play the Iowa Way!
When you think of Iowa do political caucuses and fields of corn come to mind? Perhaps they should. Every four years, “The Hawkeye State” hosts a first step in the presidential nomination process. Iowa is also an agricultural powerhouse, growing 20% of all of America’s corn crop, along with soybeans and oats. In fact, 90% of the state’s arable land is devoted to feeding the world or to agricultural related businesses. Those same rolling hills and fertile valleys make it a draw for cyclists and hikers, while its northern lakes attract fishermen, boaters and jet skiers. Iowa has abundant opportunities for food and wine connoisseurs, lovers of history and the arts, and spiritual explorations.
Enjoy a glass of red/ white in a unique urban setting at the Santa Maria Vineyard and Winery in Carroll or kick back with a cold craft one at Backpocket Brewing in Coralville. Indulge in an Eskimo Pie in Onawa, the town where it was invented, or munch a Twin Bing candy bar, one of the nation’s oldest confections, in Sioux City. Its all downhill in Burlington, walking/driving Snake Alley, one of the crookedest streets in the world, and all smooth sailing in Spirit Lake, fishing the state’s largest glacier made lake. See the works of “American Gothic” painter, Grant Wood, in Cedar Rapids or take in the colorful outdoor display of the many barn quilts near Cedar Falls . Relive America’s pioneering days at the Fort Museum in Fort Dodge or at the Country Schoolhouse in Dysart. In Fairfield, explore your inner self at the world’s largest Transcendental Meditation training center.
