About Iowa

×

The state of Iowa may be pretty rural, but it’s also home to metropolitan cities like Des Moines and Cedar Rapids.

Whether you’re coming here to enjoy the great outdoors or soak up some culture, FlipKey has the perfect rental condo or apartment to suit you! 

About Iowa

Iowa was admitted to the Union as the 29th state in 1846. From the main cities of Ames (home to Iowa State University) and Cedar Rapids to the capital Des Moines and the rural northwest, Iowa is a diverse state that’s also considered one of the safest in the USA.

Come here for a warm welcome and eclectic cuisine – homely dishes like casserole, pork BBQ and corn on the cob are always on the menu, whilst some areas (those with a high Latino population) boast authentic family-run Latino restaurants with high-quality food.

The climate here is hot and humid, with average summer temperatures of around 32 degrees centigrade. Winters see temperatures drop to well below freezing, with plenty of snow and ice—possibly not the best time to visit!

What to do in Iowa

Make sure to visit the ‘Field of Dreams’ from the Kevin Costner film of the same name in Dyersville before heading for Des Moines. Here, you can visit the State Fair for an authentic taste of Iowa, tour the Capitol Building and Salisbury House, or take the kids to Adventureland Amusement and Water Park—the largest in Iowa and well worth a visit.

For outdoor pursuits, hiking and camping at Honey Creek State Park in Moravia is a must – you can even rent a kayak and enjoy Rathbun Lake, with some great picnic spots too.

Make sure you visit Albert the Bull, the world’s largest bull statue located in Audubon. Albert stands 30 feet tall, weighs 45 tons and attracts over 20,000 visitors a year!

Don’t miss the chance to shop for locally-grown produce (like the popular zucchini) at Des Moines and Dubuque Farmers Markets.

Top travel tips for Iowa

Keep an eye on weather warnings, as Iowa lies in ‘tornado alley’ with a risk of extreme weather during the spring and summer. There are around 50 days of thunderstorm activity a year.

A car is pretty essential when it comes to getting around (although public transport in the main cities is fairly reliable) and you can pick up car rentals at Des Moines International Airport. Avoid driving during the winter months if you can as the roads can be treacherous.

From rural countryside to cosmopolitan cities packed with attractions for all ages, Iowa has plenty to offer anybody looking for a fun-packed vacation. 

FlipKey has plenty of rentals in Iowa, from spacious mansions to log cabins and studio apartments, so you’re sure to find the perfect accommodation for your trip! Start your search, today!
