    Nebraska is the best state touching Iowa to NOT visit

    Close call with the others. Depends what you are looking for. For me, South Dakota is probably the best place to visit.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Nebraska is the best state touching Iowa to NOT visit

    I probably agree but Iowa is probably the best state for Nebraska residents not to visit. Maybe SD.

    Re: Nebraska is the best state touching Iowa to NOT visit

    Really Kansas has a whole lot of nothing going on... that being said, my wife and I took a trip around Iowa (the states touching Iowa) and the parts of most of those states that are close to Iowa are worthless. Omaha is tons more interesting than Kansas City though so Nebraska has that going I suppose.

    Let me just stop you right there. Do your parents know you're playing on the internet?


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Nebraska is the best state touching Iowa to NOT visit

    Nebraska is pretty worthless besides Omaha.

    South Dakota is one of the most underrated states. Sioux falls is a nice city and the western half is full of state and national parks. Not to mention if you're a biker, Sturgis looks to be off the charts.

    Outside of Kansas City and Wichita Kansas sucks unless you enjoy driving for hours to get to some old town historical tourist trap.

    Re: Nebraska is the best state touching Iowa to NOT visit

    Yeah, I have a bias, but how on earth can Minnesota not be better? Nicer major city (sorry, Minneapolis crushes Omaha) more disparate landscape, and an overall greater diversity of attractions.
