Iowa State Travel Guide


Iowa became our 29th state on December 28, 1846. With a landscape of rolling plains and cornfields, it is bordered 
by the Mississippi River to the east and the Missouri River and Big Sioux River to the west.

“You asked what land I love the best, Iowa, tis Iowa, The fairest State of all the west, Iowa, O! Iowa, From yonder Mississippi’s stream, To where Missouri’s waters gleam, O! fair it is as poet’s dream, Iowa, in Iowa.” S.H.M. Byers

Iowa is home to four National Park units.
