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.
Bulbous, bright yellow, grinning municipal water tower "Ol' Smiley" was erected in 1979. It's the happy town ambassador, where the slogan once was "Adair -- It'll make you smile!"
Albert is a 45-ton, 30-foot-tall concrete replica of the perfect Hereford bull. Push a button and he'll tell you his story.
Small, four-room house where The Duke, towering Hollywood legend, was born. He lived there in his first year of life, when he was still quite small.
Pat Acton uses his spare time to build impressively-detailed, giant models of buildings, spaceships, whatever, out of hundreds of thousands of wooden matchsticks.
The house made famous as a background for a Grant Wood painting is now a popular photo-op.
A big, benevolent Native American made of steel watches over Sioux City. His lone epitaph is that he was "Friend of White Man."
A classic collection of wax Bible scenes, art, and ephemera from the Judeo-Christian world.
