Iowa? Seriously? Yes! Honestly this quiet midwestern state known for corn more than anything else is probably not high on your list of places to go for your next mancation.
It wasn't for me either, but a cross country road trip last year from Chicago to San Diego caused me to take a moment to reconsider Iowa and all the stuff that it does offer for a group of guys looking for an adventure.
As I drove through I saw signs for places like towns named Manning and Manley, the World's Largest Truck Stop, John Wayne Birthplace, Maytag (home of the worlds greatest blue cheese!), Templeton Rye distillery, a farmer creating revolutionary new breeds of hog that are starting to be recognized as the best in the world, a rapidly growing craft brewing scene, the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Museum and more. So, I started wondering what else was here waiting for guys in Iowa.
I discovered more than can be featured in this article, I encourage you to visit Travel Iowa and explore there as well.
