    Wisconsin best, followed by Missouri (can't believe I just typed the last part)...

    Kansas City is quite a fun city. Tons to do, but depends on what you like. We always stay at the Embassy just north of the plaza.

    You'll have to stop in sometime!

    Never have been to Milwaukee actually
    Madison, WI? Madtown crushes the bottom 3 on your list easily.

    Best states bordering Iowa:

    1. Missouri
    2. Wisky
    3. Illinois
    4. South Dakota
    5. Minny
    6. Nebraska

    Nebraska may be the worst state overall but I do think Omaha is a great city to visit and live in.

    I'm currently living in Missouri. Based on your rankings I'm assuming you're not big into the whole literacy thing.

    Hey now, take it easy on Omaha. I don't think I like the tone of this thread :)

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

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

    South Dakota is absolutely beautiful out west. No other state bordering Iowa can compare to the natural wonders of the Badlands and the Black Hills. If my family and business weren't in Iowa, I would love to live in the Rapids City area.

    Why not live on the Iowa side of Omaha and get the best of both worlds???

    Again, although it was in a different thread, I would put the North Shore of Minnesota up against any State. It is pretty cool! Grand Marais/Gun Flint trail may be my favorite place.

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

    I'd have to go with:

    1. South Dakota -- Not much in the East other than a corn palace and Sioux Falls, but the Western portion of the state is great. I enjoy the history and scenery of Custer State Park, the Badlands, and the greater Black Hills area. If history, camping, biking, hiking and the like were not your thing then SD would not be first on your list.
    2. Missouri -- Quite a bit of history throughout the state from the Civil War era and Mark Twain to being the gateway of most major trails and last home of Daniel Boone. KC and St. Louis are both fun towns with good eats and entertainment options. The Ozarks and Southern Missouri add some nice outdoor options.
    3. Illinois -- Chicago is a great town during the summer and during the Christmas season, which makes up for the rest of the state not being so great to visit outside of maybe Springfield and Cairo.
    4. Wisconsin -- Madison is a great place to go out. Milwaukee also isn't too bad with the brewery tours and Miller Park. Quite a bit of outdoor stuff with the Lake and the Dells. Cheese and sausage options galore.
    5. Minnesota -- Pretty nice place to be for 3 months if you are covered in insect repellent with boundary waters being first amongst the outdoor options. The twin cities are ok but just don't compare to Chicago, KC or St. Louis in my opinion.
    6. Nebraska -- I can find good things to say about every state. Fort Robinson, Chimney Rock and some ok trail history out West. Omaha's Old Market area isn't bad, especially with the addition of the new ball park. But, Nebraska is by far the worst of the surrounding states. Still, it probably would beat Kansas, which has little outside of Dodge City, which is way over tourismized, in my opinion.
