Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near Iowa
While in Iowa, you might enjoy a visit to:
56 feet tall, a huge replica of the tiny spike that marked the (supposed) completion of the transcontinental railroad in far-away Utah.
A combatant in the World's Crookedest Street battle, and in an unexpected place.
Towering metal Mary and Jesus, wooden Last Supper, and the Lord created from burlap bags. Sacred Art from household materials!
A still-unknown maniac axed the family in this house in 1911. Visitors can tour it, or sleep over if they're feeling fearless. Now heated!
Pat Acton uses his spare time to build impressively-detailed, giant models of buildings, spaceships, whatever, out of hundreds of thousands of wooden matchsticks.
A big goose with a bonnet is all that remains of Mother Goose Land.
An elephant died in town while on tour, was buried to remove its flesh, and was dug up again to exhibit its bones.
A big, benevolent Native American made of steel watches over Sioux City. His lone epitaph is that he was "Friend of White Man."
