Lots of history here! I used to come here as a kid as much as I could! They've kept it in continual operation for decades. This museum is really big with tons of history and items to see, definitely check out if you are in the area.
Fun for kids and adults. When we went there were more adult couples than kids doing this! I totally recommend getting the $69 green bucket or something larger... you will not be disappointed. It's fun to see what treasures you get, and they do feel like treasures - even to us adults! There's a little creek out back but the main attraction is definitely buying a bucket and going through it!
Worth it for the photo op if you are a Trek fan. Not much else really in the area, and all this is is a marker. There is a museum nearby if interested, but the highlight for me was getting a picture with the monument.
This truly was a hidden gem in Iowa. You can really see all the little fossils and touch them. Visitor's center was informational. Lots to do there is a campsite and also a park with some equipment.
Roux is now called Good Fellows. It is still in Woodbine. Great atmosphere and a tasty menu, also there is a bar in the other half of the restaurant. If you stop for lunch, afterwards you can walk around the quaint downtown and see the metal art installations they have scattered around, be sure to see the "dinosaur den"
So, we went here - not intending to. We had kids with us. We were going to skip this street entirely but we accidently wandered into it anyway. Lots of people trying to give you beads for a "donation". A bit seedy but mostly harmless at the time we went. Good place to people watch. Would not want to bring kids down here when it gets too late in the evening though.
This was a fun trip. the only down side was I felt like the food was not so great. The gumbo especially was awful, it tasted like chemicals... but we were not on this for the food, it was for the ride and the experience. The Jazz band was nice and I would do this again. Maybe in daylight hours. We went right around New Years time so it was dark out when we went.
Wow, this was interesting to see. It was a bit like "the Orange Show" in Houston, only a much smaller scale. I personally like these one man art installations. There is no charge, you park across the street. The whole thing takes about 15-30 minutes to see depending on how much you are admiring stuff. Our kids were not so into this one, but I think it was worth a stop... certainly free is a good price too. :)
Interesting to see. They are all over the place though. Not just this one area.
Great stop for just ice cream, or see the museum too. No admission fee. Just pay for any ice cream you want to eat. They have a great selection to choose from. There's a move and a few interactive displays. Plenty of seating to eat your ice cream. Beautiful two story building.
