Hubby & I are often amazed at how much planning can go into a trip. We each remember how things were growing up in our families where dad & mom just piled all the kids into the car and headed one direction (usually west) and whatever you found along the way was what you got; hotel rooms, restaurants or entertainment. Now, I’ll spend weeks planning all the nitty gritty details of our family excursions …(but at least I find the beach when I go to Florida – ask hubby and his buddies about it sometime) …
When planning our Field Trips – I couldn’t do without my Free travel guide and maps from Travel Iowa ~ grab one online or at any of the helpful Iowa Welcome Centers * Make the guide your own – mark it up, rip out pages, highlight – it’s your inspiration!
And…it’s just one of my go-to resources – I LOVE TripAdvisor – check out the IOWA page
Locate your neighboring county on this Map– you may be closer to their parks, trails, libraries and museums than your own.
