Inbound Iowa Loess Hills Day Trip - September 25, 2018

The Loess Hills are shaped by nature; these majestic hills are the hallmark of a road trip in Western Iowa. Formed by deposits of fine windblown soil at the end of the ice age, these are not your average hills. While the lavender is still blooming, smell, see, pick and taste this delectable plant during a lunch stop. Then a step-on guide will take you through parts of the Loess Hills. Visit the DeSoto Wildlife Refuge where the Steamboat Bertrand Collection is on display. A trip to an orchard and a stop at the Manning Hausbarn are also on the agenda. The fee includes transportation, lunch, all admissions and gratuities. Register

Do you like taste-testing everything on a stick or seeing the Butter Cow and all of the other buttery creations at the Iowa State Fair? How about strolling through the homemade crafts and quilts? Take a trip to the 2018 Iowa State Fair for Older Iowan Day. You won’t have to worry about fighting traffic because the bus will drop the group off inside the gates right next to Ye Old Mill. Register
