Something that surprised me was the amount of caves there are in Iowa! There’s a stereotypical assumption that Iowa is flat and just full of corn fields, so discovering that there were caves was an interesting find. In this post I share 3 cave locations that can be found in East Iowa which all offer completely different experiences!
Adrenaline junkies are well and truly spoilt when it comes to finding adventure in the UK. Zip World North Wales has everything you could want and more. Search for whatever you want; longest zip wire in Wales, longest zip wire in the UK, fastest zip wire in the WORLD and you’re going to get the same answer. Zip World! The zip line makes up just one part of zip world and I’m going to share with you everything you need to know about visiting!
My childhood years were spent touring around various campgrounds in the UK, it was always the highlight of my summer. As I got older I even thought about getting my towing license so I could pull a caravan (failing that I really wanted a camper van). In the UK people my age don’t have the ‘grandfather rights’ to tow above a certain weight and have to take a test…I believe in the USA anyone can tow automatically. But now with the growing popularity of ‘glamping‘, it lets you have the camping experience without the need on having to pull your own accommodation to the campground! I visited Spook Cave and Campground, just outside of McGregor in East Iowa and stayed in their ‘Hut’ cabin. Here’s why Spook Cave should be on your Iowa bucket list!
Maquoketa Caves State Park is located in East Iowa and the awesome thing about it is that it’s completely free to visit! The park consists of 6 miles of walking trails through a woodland area (complete with the deer!), some follow the path through large caves and others lead to the entrances of caves that require a bit of crawling! There are 16 caves altogether, around 50% are ‘walk in caves’. The caves were first discovered back in the 1830s. Here are my tips for visiting Maquoketa Caves State Park!
