Lol. I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but Fareway is like this too and I miss it too. Moved from Iowa about a year ago.

My wife and I love Fareway. The meat dept takes me back to when I was a kid and my mom would take me to the corner butcher. Great personable service.

Dubuque

I know someone mentioned the Mines of Spain just south of Dubuque, but Dubuque itself is probably one of the more scenic cities and has a lot of historical sites. You can also drive north or south along the Mississippi are absolutely beautiful drives.

I see RAGBRAI mentioned a couple times which is a fantastic way to see the state. I just wanted to add that Iowa also has an awesome network of bike trails. Check out Iowa Bike Trails

Would you help me decide where to go by giving us one good reason to visit your State.
Thanks

I agree. One of my favorite things about Cedar Falls, great trail system.

I gotta go with Hy Vee, they gave my sons jobs. Most of them have a fresh meat section that rivals Fareway.
