Iowa Weekend Getaways
Plan a Romantic Weekend in Iowa's Dutch Country
Here's one we like, Orange City, Iowa. Why? It's a uniquely special and delightfully romantic oasis in the far Northwestern corner of the state. This little town has been a popular tourism destination since the 1930s after the introductions of the first annual Tulip Festival. Orange City is rich in Dutch and Northern European heritage and it shows in its architecture and local businesses. Visitors come to enjoy delicious food, friendly B&Bs, and, depending on the time of year, a sea of tulips blooms. Is it romantic? Well, it has rapidly become the prime place for weddings, wedding planning, and attire. So when you're planning your IA weekend getaway, remember, the only thing better than roses in Des Moines are tulips in Orange city.

If you happen to live in Iowa, traveling to a small and secluded
place is easy. Lodging rates in small hidden towns like Fort Dodge,
Mason City, Shenandoah or Davenport can be much less expensive. Many of the
smaller towns in Iowa offer great little B&B's or cabin
making a quick weekend escape easy and inexpensive. There are always
quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.

A Iowa Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a Iowa major metropolitan area like Sioux City,
Dubuque, Des Moines or Cedar Rapids, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. There are world class resorts in
these great cities that offer tremedous savings during the travel off seasons. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
Iowa Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Argosy Casino or Storm Lake or attend Black Hawk Lake Pelican Fest in April
or Waterloo ArtiGras in March. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Iowa events like Rockin' in Summer in Sioux City in June or Color the Wind Kite Festival in Clear Lake in February.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Iowa,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Sioux City, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Spencer resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Sioux City."
