|IOWA: Celebrating All Together
Iowa is not just farming; yes, we raise corn and beans, cattle, hogs, and sheep; but we are more than our
agrarian heritage, we are a collection of diversity. Farming, banking, insurance, science, education, and
historical preservation are just a few of the prominent aspects of an Iowa life.
While in town for the Lily Show, consider doing some sight seeing. In the local area there are several unique
sights to be seen; the cemetery in the middle of a road, the Pappajohn Sculpture Garden, Grant Wood Murals at
the Iowa State University Library, and The National Hot Air Balloon Museum just to name a few. And who can
forget ‘The Duke’; in Winterset you can see John Wayne’s Birthplace, the covered bridges, and the Iowa Quilt
Des Moines is home to the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates as well as Zombie Burger and Fong’s Pizza.
Knoxville is home to the National Sprint Car Museum for racing buffs.
Iowa is home to the site of the northernmost battle fought west of the Mississippi during the Civil War. Iowa is the
only state whose east and west borders are 100% formed by water. The highest double track railroad bridge in
the world, the Kate Shelley Bridge, is located at Boone. Iowa is the only state name that starts with two vowels.
From the fanciful to the macabre, from historical to bizarre, Iowa has something for everyone.
