Cedar Rapids

Cedar Rapids ©
Cedar Rapids is the second largest city in Iowa and is the county seat of Linn County. Venture out of the city with trips to Dubuque (Veteran's Memorial Plaza, Fenelon Place Elevator Co., &more), Cedar Rock State Park (Lowell Walter Residence) (in Independence) and National Motorcycle Museum (in Anamosa). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Iowa 80 Trucking Museum, steep yourself in history at Brucemore, don't miss a visit to Grant Wood Window in Veteran's Memorial Auditorium, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Sunderbruch Park Trail.
