Group Description

Dan Kaercher, founding editor-in-chief of Midwest Living magazine and host of several Iowa Public Television series, returns to IPTV in search of fun things for Iowans to do, see, and taste, right here at home.

Kaercher and the IPTV team pored over Iowa’s abundant options of "things to do" and they discovered treasures that aren’t necessarily well-known outside their own local areas. Activities like tubing down a winding river, bike riding on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, and so much more! And then of course there was a lot of EATING! From international fare at Café Dodici in downtown Washington, to the 20-ounce Gunderburger at The Irish Shanti in Gunder, there’s no doubt there is plenty here in Iowa to tempt your taste buds! If your appetite is for fun, Dan visits some of Iowa’s newer destinations like King’s Pointe in Storm Lake, along with some old favorites like the Blank Park Zoo.

Do you have a favorite place in Iowa for family picnics? Vacations? Sunday afternoon drives? Fishing spots? Share your photos here! Be sure to title your photo, give a brief explanation of why it is one of Iowa's Simple Pleasures and finally geotag the location on Flickr's map.

On the Web site, find excerpts from Dan's journal of his travels in the state, watch preview videos from the series, and share your stories about Iowa’s best destinations.
