When I was going to board, one of the staff members told me that I could not board with my passport bag because it was tree items and I would need to check a bag. This was so stupid ! The bag was small. So I had to put my things in my pockets, put the funny bag inside the other bag. Then go throw it. Then in the plane put everything back again in my funny bag.

Agriculture dominates the landscape here, with a neatly ordered patchwork of fields and farms occupying the softly rolling plains. It’s pleasant, with a gentle pace of life and hospitable, small-town feel, but its tourist appeal – and some would say excitement value – is limited; as Bill Bryson, born in its capital, memorably declared, “I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to.”

The two major tourist draws are the small white house that, along with its stony faced residents, was immortalised in Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and the bridges of Madison County, where the eponymous book and film were set.

Cinema buffs can also make a detour to see Dyerville’s baseball diamond, built for the filming of another tear jerker, 1989’s Field of Dreams.

In the westernmost part of the state, the dramatic ridges of the Loess Hills rise some 61 metres above the plains. Formed in the Ice Age by drifts of windblown sediment, they’re now home to a number of wildlife and nature reserves and State Parks, popular with hikers, hunters and campers.

Iowa climate

One of the Great Plains states, Iowa’s climate has wild weather with thunderstorms, droughts, blizzards, and hailstorms, and the western part of the state is in tornado alley.Iowa generally has hot and humid summers with temperatures reaching or exceeding 37 degrees (Celsius). Winters are cold and harsh, January temperatures are generally in the minus figures and low single digits, and travel can be difficult. Spring and autumn are mild, but the springs are wet. Typically, the state has 266 sunny or partly sunny days and an average of 76cm (30 inches) of winter snowfall.

Getting around Iowa

Driving is the best way to get around Iowa and its cities, and the best way to see the state. Scenic drives take you to the Madison Country bridges, along the Mississippi valley, and through the Loess Hills. Iowa has 13 scenic drives and 23 visitor centres.

The terrain of plains and low, rolling hills makes bicycling easy, and the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (Ragbrai) is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state and is the longest, largest, and oldest touring bicycle ride in the world.

What is good to know if travelling to Iowa?

  • Some of the best architecture can be found in the Midwest and the Des Moines Art Centre definitely ranks high on the list. Designed by three of the greatest 20th century architects: I. M. Pei, Eliel Saarinen, and Richard Meier, this modern museum is home to some of the most exquisite modern art including works by Matisse, O’Keeffe, Rothko, and Richter.
  • Another impressive structure that shouldn’t be missed is the Figge Art Museum designed by London-based minimalist architect David Chipperfield. Overlooking the Mississippi River, the museum has an impressive collection of art including works by Grant Wood and Any Warhol as well as a large selection of Mexican colonial paintings.
  • If you enjoyed reading the weepy novel Bridges of Madison County or watching the movie, then why not visit the famous covered bridges in the picturesque town of Winterset where the movie was filmed. Then head to legendary actor John Wayne’s house where he was born and take a guided tour of the 1907 property.
  • Antique lovers should head to the town of Walnut, better known as “the antique city”, and explore the quaint antique shops that house some of the best quality antiques in the country. A favourite among antique buffs is the Granary Antique Mall where you’ll find a large selection of priceless antiques and collectibles. And if you happen to be there in June check the annual AMVET’s Antique Walk and Show.
  • If you’re interested in US history then the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library, Museum, and National Historic Site will fascinate you. The Historic Site includes a tour of the former President’s birthplace cottage, his father’s blacksmith shop, a Quaker meetinghouse, a pioneer schoolhouse and the president’s grave.
  • When is the best time to fly to Iowa?

    Peak Season:Summer is the peak tourist season and when most visitors step off their flights to Iowa. July and August are busy with fairs and festivals, and the Iowa State Fair (the state’s largest event) is held in August. There are lots of outdoor activities, and summer is the time for golfing, fishing, hiking, camping, and biking. Off Season:Des Moines is comfortable in late spring and early autumn, especially May and September, when temperatures are in the low 20s (Celsius). The autumn foliage rivals that in some of the more expensive states, and “fall” also brings about the hunting season. Winter has cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, although the weather can make travel around the state difficult.

  • Can I find cheaper flights to Iowa if I am willing to have stopovers?

    Yes, flights with stopovers are often cheaper than direct flights. Keep an eye out for flight deals to Iowa on Cheapflights that require 1 or 2 stops for potential cost savings.

  • What is the best airline to fly to Iowa?

    Based on reviews from Cheapflights users, Finnair is rated the highest out of the airlines that fly to Iowa.

  • Where does the fastest flight to Iowa depart from?

    For those looking to save time traveling to Iowa, London offers the quickest one-way flight (11 hours 28 minutes).

  • Does Des Moines have car hire?

    Yes. Those touching down at Des Moines can take advantage of the car hire services offered upon their arrival.
