Iowa continues to surprise people when they visit. I have been on a book tour of the state of Iowa for my book, 100 Things to Do in Iowa Before You Die. Many people comment on how beautiful our state is- I agree 10/10! My friend Erin of the popular Iowa blog, Des Moines Parent wrote the book 100 Things to Do in Des Moines Before You Die. The book is out and you can get your copy now! Here is some of what you can expect to learn about Des Moines in this book.
