Ames is a city located in the central part of Story County, Iowa, United States. Change things up with these side-trips from Ames: Winterset (Hogback Covered Bridge, Roseman Covered Bridge, & more), Amana (Amana Woolen Mill, Amana General Store, & more) and Altoona (Adventureland & Prairie Meadows). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Reiman Gardens, steep yourself in history at Historical Village, Vermeer Windmill & Scholte House, admire all the interesting features of Iowa State University, and grab your bike and head to High Trestle Trail.
