  • The Capitol Building is beautiful. Downtown is very easy to navigate around to all the landmarks and most are within walking distance of each other.  more »
  • I was back in Iowa the first week of September it was well worth the stop a great place to go with family, GF or BF, the water is so calming, if you haven't been there yet you really should go.  more »
  • This park is a treasure that is enjoyed by many, every single day. It's beautiful. The lake and park offer many activities to fill everyone's interests. There's a nice view of the city skyline and another of the Iowa Capital building. Many rentals and classes offered at the marina. Great multi use trail, public beach, and a bonus nesting Eagles as well as many other birds and wildlife.
  • Easily accessible. Clean. Easy to rent kayaks. (They even have a kayak launch. I guess these are common, but I've kayaked many times over the last 5 years and I'd never seen one.) Anyway... Fun! Don't go just for the lights on the bridge... they're cool, but not a destination. I waited till after dark to see them... i regret making the kids wait that long to leave.
