Iowa Children's Museum

Reviewed By Owen49 - Davenport, Iowa, United States

We visited the ICM with a two+ year old. A little young for this experience. Very crowded, particularly when a school group is present and mostly takes over. Exhibits are somewhat haphazard in theme. They are trying to do too much. Pricing for young children, $9, seems a bit high .
We will give the ICM one more try.

Lake Macbride State Park

Reviewed By noahpaulkeck - Solon, Iowa

Hills, tees and lots of water. This is a gorgeous park that will make you believe you left Iowa. You can rent boats, canoes and kayaks. Plan ahead on weekends and get a reservation if you want to be sure to get a boat. Great safe beach for kids. Lake is also pretty good fishing.

When we visit wineries, we are used to/expecting experiences like Park Farm Winery in Bankston... a quiet, reserved, serene experience in the country in the middle of a vineyard... Background music, people chatting among themselves while sipping on wine and waiting for their dinner.

This ain't that. Not saying it's bad... but this definitely does not fit that image at all.

This is a BIG, BUSY, LOUD place. We were there on a Friday evening, and the place was absolutely wall to wall people, both inside and out. The parking lot was jam-packed and the overflow parking lot across the street was full as well. There was a secondary outbuilding (kind of a steel pole building) that was also open and had a bar and a large number of people in it. There were NO tables available outside, and inside was almost as bad.

The bar was lined up 4 or 5 people deep at all times. The outside tasting area was very busy as well, as was the outside bar.

There were people coming in with their own lawn chairs and tables to sit among the grape vines...

There was a band gearing up to play, although we ended up leaving before they started.

Are you getting the picture? This place is crazy busy. Not a warm, inviting establishment that you would envision as a winery. Concrete floors, steel buildings, etc.

Now, is this a bad thing? I don't think so. Obviously local people love the place... as the place was packed solid. The people who own this place are making a killing for sure! It's just not what I expected.

So... tasting. The wines were good. The single malt was VERY VERY good. we ended up taking a bottle of wine home with us on top of the one we drank there. We ordered a meat/cheese tray that was good, but very over priced. The serving size was very small for the 15 dollars they charged.

We will probably stop back in if we are in the area.... just understand that this is more of a party atmosphere than a traditional winery experience...

Macbride Nature Recreation Area

Reviewed By E_Munk - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

A few friends and I stopped out at the Raptor Center in Macbride Nature Recreation Area and were pleasantly surprised. There are a number of very unique birds here and it is a great opportunity to get a close look at them. Don't worry, these birds are not caught and caged, but have been adopted or rescued in the area and nursed back to health. All the birds here are unable to return to the wild due to injuries. I recommend stopping in taking a look at any age.

Old Capitol Museum

This was the seat of government when Iowa City was the state capital.

Reviewed By Mack3065 - West Lafayette

This was our first visit to the University of Iowa and we were surprised to see the Old State Capitol situated in what seemed the center of campus. There’s no admission charge and a small gift shop. The student docent gave us a basic orientation and we made a quick tour of rooms and exhibits on the main floor and basement. This is an impressive restoration and the displays are nicely done. Fairly easy to find, near student shops, and worth a stop.

Quail Creek Golf Course

Reviewed By Lisa M - North Liberty

My husband is the expert on golf courses. We enjoyed the course, and it seems like a good value. My husband prefers a different style of golf course, so I'm not sure that we will visit again...but we cannot complain about anything. It's a decent course.

Nile Kinnick Stadium

Reviewed By Marcia M - Riverside

We've had football season tickets for the past few years and enjoy attending games at Kinnick Stadium. There is plenty of staff present for assistance. The restrooms are well maintained and can accommodate many. Food and beverage selections are many. Traffic control (both vehicle and pedestrian) is usually done well.

Devonian Fossil Gorge

Reviewed By Susan R - Iowa City, Iowa

You will find something different each time. My first time visiting was right after the flood that uncovered the Devonian gorge. I was fascinated then--even though I didn't quite understand what I was seeing. The joy of discovery took over. Now, there is a display area that educates and points out things to find. This is popular with children because they tend to be eager explorers naturally. You can find the eager explorer in you and enjoy the Devonian Fossil Gorge.
