A&W Root Beer Family

Just saw them from I-80 on right heading west by a swimming pool. They must have moved.

Mini golf.

A&W Root Beer Family

Anyone who remembers these four figures from on top of A&W stores will smile seeing them in the mini golf course.

You'll need to turn on 306th, which is a dirt and gravel road, and parallel the interstate. We felt like we must have taken a wrong turn, but kept going. You'll go around a bend, and eventually will hit a small stretch of pavement. You've entered the campground. Drive straight down the hill and the mini golf course is on your right. You'll be very close to them even without entering the mini golf course.

Remember to stop at the convenience store for root beers before you get back on the interstate!

They are there, or they were as of August 9th. They were on the north side of I-80, just east of the Cedar River, at a campground. They are probably seasonal.

Very off the beaten path -- gravel road and all. Pretty cute little dudes though.

The Family has spent the past few decades happily hoisting their mugs 'n' burgers at a campground mini-golf course.

Not sure if the mini golf course is still in operation (it looked a bit dilapidated when we were there), but the A&W Burger Family is still alive and kicking in Tipton, Iowa. Very visible from I-80, smiling out at all who pass by.
