If you’re looking for a fun, adventurous getaway in Iowa, the Waterloo and Cedar Falls area should be on your radar! Waterloo is predominantly known for its connection to John Deere, the iconic green and yellow tractors have been manufactured in Waterloo for 100 years! But did you know there are some great outdoor adventures to be had in the Cedar Falls and Waterloo area?!
Another item finally ticked off the bucket list! I could never imagine grabbing a rubber swim ring and floating down a British river, I just always associate them with being a bit grubby and full of rats and shopping trolleys (carts)! But when you’re in America, 1000 miles away from the nearest ocean, beggars can’t be choosers!
One of the cool parts of travelling is being able to experience things that are part of the culture you are visiting. Before I went to Hawaii, a neighbour recommended us to have a go on an Outrigger Canoe while visiting Oahu. Outrigger Canoes are similar to a narrow dug out canoe but with a giant stabiliser on one side. In Polynesian cultures as well as a method of transport, they are used in racing too!
