*The land where you’ll find Iowa’s highest point and Iowa’s second highest point! The Northwest Iowa road trip can’t be complete without a visit to at least one of them! Our trip to Osceola County was funded and sponsored by the Western Iowa Tourism Region. Some of the services, meals and goods were complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our. Now, let’s Gallivant!
We’re hugging the Minnesota border once again in Northwest Iowa! Wide open splendor is what we look forward to when we visit Osceola County with its own style of prairie filled beauty. The sunshine was out all day long and so were we!
Take a few minutes and try to think of some silver medalists throughout history. It can be hard to do, but there are some glorious and downright historic second place finishers. One of those is Ocheyedan Mound State Preserve near Ocheyedan, Iowa!
The town of Harris lured us in with the promise of a few things. One of them was the rock hound inspired roadside attraction directly on Main Street.
Trails, trails and more trails for us in Western Iowa this summer! We sought them out more than ever and they helped us discover countless acres and scenery we would have never experienced without them. Osceola County helped us with our goals and we racked up the miles while we were here!
Let’s Eat Steak
Ashton, Iowa was our T-Bone Trail location for this Gallivant into Osceola County! Charlie’s Bar & Grill is where the locals made sure to give us a few “tips.” Charlie’s is located on Ashton’s main drag inside what is now a repurposed bank. Click on the video below and see what’s so “safe” about this restaurant….
Let’s Go Shopping
Downtown Sibley has produced some good times for us over the past couple of summers. Donuts, craft beer, sausages, refreshing coffee and lovable locals. We’ve made it back and found more reasons to keep coming back!
We’ve made a lot of good friends during our Western Iowa travels on The T-Bone Trail and you most defiantly include AmericInn hotels on that list. We’ve had the pleasure to stay at many of their Iowa locations with Sibley’s AmericInn joining the t-bone party!
Another AmericInn down and I hope to see several more! I can scratch Sibley’s off the list and I highly recommend that you do the same when you’re in the area. Professional and helpful staff that didn’t show any signs of a hiccup the entire time. Hope to see you all again!
Those good times with delicious beef inspired meals didn’t end with those juicy steaks tips from Charlie’s while we were exploring Osceola County. It’s taco time in Sibley, y’all!
I need very few reasons for making the executive decision when it’s hamburger o’clock. It makes the decision that much easier when you tell me that my purchase is going to a good cause. The local Sibley grocery store is Super Foods and they host the Burger Barn!
Dang that was a great time in Osceola County! Plenty of sunshine, long walks, fun locals and tasty cookin’ to go around for everyone. The Northwest Iowa hospitality is never running low and this revisit proved that statement to be true again. Tacos, steak, burgers, nachos, ice cream, and jerky. That deserves another dip in the hot tub. Let’s Gallivant again!
