Find great things to do with the kids!

Fun things to do in carroll

Iowa is a very rural state, but one that should never be overlooked. It is charming, quaint, beautiful, and jam packed with places to go with kids!

There is a plethora of places to enjoy the great outdoors, such as the very cool Spook Cave, the historic Prairie Learning Center and the secluded Wilton Island State Park.

The beautiful and the quirky will always be just around the corner, with the National Farm Toy Museum and Fort Custer Maze, and the whole family will love the rural farm fun with Center Grove Orchard and Bloomsbury Farm - a real taste of the Iowa hospitality and charm!

Don’t think for a second that Iowa can’t be thrilling - just head to Adventureland Park or the classic Arnolds Park - one of the oldest amusement parks in the WORLD!

And don’t forget to get those baseball fans down to the Field Of Dreams Movie Site!

Is this Heaven? No, it’s Iowa…
