Iowa's Simple Pleasures (#105)

Enjoy a tubing adventure down the Iowa River; taste the fresh and innovative cuisine found in Washington; learn about Iowa’s aviation history in Greenfield; and visit a museum in Northwest Iowa that is home to the state’s oldest planetarium. Hosted by Dan Kaercher.

Rock-n-Row Adventures: Hardin County, Eldora
Rock-n-Row Adventures in Eldora offers a fabulous tubing experience. Dan visited this stretch of the Iowa River for a simple, relaxing afternoon float.

Café Dodici: Washington County, Washington
Great international cuisine can be found at local eateries across the state - in this case it’s in the town of Washington. Dan enjoyed a fresh, elegant meal and got to know the owners, whose dreams of helping restore the downtown area have come to fruition.

Iowa Aviation Museum and Hall of Fame: Adair County, Greenfield
Aviation and Iowa have very strong ties. Dan’s trip to Adair County helped him make the connection.

Sanford Museum and Planetarium: Cherokee County, Cherokee
If you like artifacts and star gazing, Dan’s stop in Cherokee will be of interest to you.
