Fort Dodge, IA to Iowa Falls, IA - 55 miles

Iowa Falls is nestled on the borders of the beautiful Iowa River in north central Iowa. The river, the cliffs, and the parks along the river have given Iowa Falls the well-deserved nickname, "The Scenic City."

Iowa Falls is Hardin County, IA and is the home of Ellsworth Community College. It is also a regional transportation center, located along U.S. Routes 20 and 65 and the Canadian National and Union Pacific Railroads. A landmark in the city is its movie theater. Built as the Metropolitan Opera House in 1899, it presented plays, operas, and vaudville in the town during the first half of the twentieth century, and today is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Interesting Sign.... Something I don't know about?

As an afterthought, I decided to add this photo for a couple of laughs....

Tomorrow we are off to Waterloo, IA
