Iowa's Simple Pleasures (#102)

Travel to Cedar Rapids to take in a Kernel's game; climb to the top of a giant treehouse in Marshalltown; visit a flower farm in Madison County; and take a relaxing canoe ride down the North Raccoon River near Sac City. Hosted by Dan Kaercher.

Cedar Rapids Kernels: Linn County, Cedar Rapids (others)
Iowa provides many opportunities to enjoy what we call “America’s favorite past-time”. Check out the ballparks in eastern Iowa for yourself.

The Big Treehouse: Marshall County, Marshalltown
Think big, no, REALLY BIG! Dan’s stop in Marshall County will have you green with envy of a treehouse like no other!

Howell’s Dried Florals: Madison County, Cumming
Fall is a great time of year to visit the farm. Dan found one in Madison County that celebrates fall in a “hands-on” sort of way.

Canoeing: Sac County, Sac City
Watching your natural surroundings glide by you on a canoe is a relaxing experience and the scenery was fabulous in Sac County on the Raccoon River.
