Grinnell is a city in Poweshiek County, Iowa, United States. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grinnell: Newton (Maytag Dairy Farm & Jasper County Historical Museum), Meskwaki Bingo & Casino (in Tama) and Matchstick Marvels Museum (in Gladbrook). There's still lots to do: admire the engineering at Jacob Krumm Nature Preserve, stroll through Fun Valley Ski Area, make a trip to Louis Sullivan Jewel Box Bank, and explore the activities along Diamond Lake Park.

Plan my Grinnell trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
