If you're a golf enthusiast, or if you have some budding golfers in your family, Iowa can offer a rather more unusual holiday that is definitely off the beaten track. Its rolling countryside - mainly appropriated by immense arable farms - is perfect for golf courses and putting greens, and Iowans have certainly taken advantage of this feature of their state's land and put it to good use.
It's populated by friendly people who are interested in their visitors, and you'll find that everything is excellent value - you don't just get good value, you get a ridiculous amount for your money. This is true whether it's home-cooked comfort food, large and comfortable hotel rooms, or a bag of fries.
It also has a few secrets that nearly nobody knows. Remember the film The Bridges of Madison County? You got it, Madison County is in Iowa. Not to mention the classic feel-good movie, Field of Dreams, the outdoor locations of which are set in this expansive state.
Because Iowa is so rural, the public transport is hit-and-miss to the point of it being pointless for visitors. The best route, therefore, is to get yourself a hire vehicle, because this gives you the opportunity to get a proper feel for the state. Wide open spaces, loads of sky and a feeling of freedom as you're riding along; this is surely the stuff that holidays are made of.
If you're looking for a few things to do that don't involve eating and drinking, there are more than you think in Iowa. Get a taste of its history at the Des Moines Art Centre, with its impressive building and beautiful art collections; check out the covered bridges of the famed Madison County, and if you want to really work off all that excellent holiday food, perhaps you could take a day or two exploring the very old cycling routes around the state. The good news there is that there really aren't many hills, just gentle slopes up and down, and a lot of space.
You can easily get hire car at either Des Moines International Airport or Cedar Rapids East Iowa Airport, and from that point onwards, Iowa really is your oyster. The roads are well-maintained, not too busy, and it's easier to get around the cities in a car than it is using public transport, so it's a good choice, whichever way you look at it.
