Item description for The Great Iowa Touring Book: 27 Spectacular Auto Trips (Trails Books Guide) by Mike Whye...

For many people, Iowa is a series of rest stops, gas stops, and places to grab some food as they travel the interstate highways that cross the state. However, if travelers leave the major routes and take to the back roads, it's easy to learn there's a lot more to this state than what's seen near the interstate exits. This guidebook has 27 auto tours encompassing urban and rural areas--back roads and byways, well-known and little-known places, the famous and infamous, rivers big and small, great lakes and rare ponds, prairie and forests, plains and hills, old settlements, and brand new communities. Take in ALL of Iowa. Enjoy your road trips!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Great Iowa Touring Book: 27 Spectacular Auto Trips (Trails Books Guide)?

Wonderful information and accuracy  Sep 28, 2004
I don't know how I stumbled on this book but I'm so glad I did. It contains detailed maps of 27 auto tours "away from the interstates" in Iowa - into what I would call the "real Iowa" This book contains sites along each tour. And happiest of all for me -- the sections on Northeast Iowa -- the tree-laden hills, the valleys, the Mississippi River - are full of Accurate Information! Which I'm so happy to find after years of looking through books that misrepresent us of the Driftless corner of the state. Mike Whye did his homework. If you want to see the real Iowa take a look in this book for ideas. Particularly good if you are interested in natural beauty, outdoors recreation, and historical sites -- highlights the diverse enjoyments of Iowa.
