    50 states, 50 "awesome" vacations

    This is according to msn.com

    The sad thing is that Iowa's "awesome" vacation is....Winterset, Iowa and the birthplace of John Wayne.

    There is nothing awesome in Kansas and Nebraska...and possibly North Dakota also.

    I like Iowa a lot but it's just not a good vacation destination. There is really no way to sugar coat it.

    Re: 50 states, 50 "awesome" vacations

    I love Iowa too, but the problem is the premise. The word "awesome". I believe you can have nice trips, enjoyable vacations, etc. in Iowa. But IMO, there are only a few places on the planet that create "AWESOME" vacations.

    Re: 50 states, 50 "awesome" vacations

    You can make a weeks trip out of Iowa by starting on one end and going across the state. I think you could find things to do. I'm just not sure any of them could be considered "awesome."

    They probably didn't put the fair on there just because it's limited to a few weeks.

    WINNER! How could RAGBRAI not be #1? I guess not everyone wants to bike on vacation, but this should have won.

    I haven't looked at all of the states to see if they ahve anything like this, but I'm guessing it's in the same category as the fair. It's not an all summer thing. It's for a specific period of time.
