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

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.

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.

TT is relatively new addition to Iowa City recreational services. You can walk, bike, picnic, rent paddle boats or kayaks, rent a party building, and/or pick up a bike trail that goes along the scenic Iowa River. TT is set into a landscape that's being developed, so I expect that in future years the forest-ing will improve and spread. Nice option for the south side of town.

I got second row tickets to a show for waaay less than I ever would have imagined. We saw a nationally touring comedian and really enjoyed the show. The theater itself is a neat place. The parking ramp is two blocks east and it's in the middle of the ped mall, so plenty to eat before and after the show. I'm a bigger guy, but I found the seats to be comfortable to sit in and plenty of leg room. The staff are great. The only real knock is the location of the bar. My wife says that if there is a line for booze the women's restroom is blocked off

Wison's Orchard has long been known for apples and apple cider. A few years ago, apple turnovers, hot from the oven on Sat morning drew small crowds to sample and take the kids on a tractor ride. Now, another delight! A restaurant seems to have magically appeared, and it overlooks the scenic rolling hills of the apple orchard. Inside are culinary delights, and a number of hard ciders to sample. I enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner-we all savored our delicious meals!
Coming soon, if not done already, is an outside sitting area to further enjoy the beauty of the orchard. And if you need a large venue, the lower level of the restaurant is waiting for your reservation.

At this site in the mid-19th century, Mormons prepared for the trip to Salt Lake City.
I'll be honest: we went to see what this was all about because the site name is, well, a bit odd. It's really just a nice walking path through the woods with a few signs marking significant spots and detailing the history.
If it's on your way in or out of town or - as another reviewer said - you happen to need a walking trail, then this is a lovely spot to stop. Though it may seem a rather random site to commemorate, those of the Mormon faith may find deeper significance or simply enjoy a lovely natural spot to pray.

Stroll around downtown to see writing from the many folks who have written their famous works while in Iowa City...or maybe were inspired by others who walked before them.
