Iowa's Simple Pleasures (#401)

Join host Dan Kaercher in a fresh new season of fun Iowa adventures! In this episode, Kaercher checks out the Sioux City Musketeers hockey team, dines on unique food in Waterloo under an interpretation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and visits downtown Des Moines.

*Note, this online version of the program does not include the feature segment on the Glenn Miller museum originally broadcast on IPTV.

Rent a bike or go river boating in downtown Des Moines; check out the Midwest's fastest sport on ice in the northwest part of the state; and in northeast Iowa, dine under artwork reminiscent of the Sistine chapel.
