*Storm Lake is one of the main reasons that folks flock to Buena Vista County with good and beautiful reasons. However, there’s more of this Northwest Iowa county that’s scenic and ready to be discovered by more of Iowa’s travelers. Our visit to Buena Vista County was funded and sponsored by the Western Iowa Tourism Region. Some of the meals, goods and services were complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
One of Iowa’s most well known lakes, a popular resort with a water park, scenic byway and delicious restaurants bring visitors to Buena Vista County everyday. It’s a terrific vacation spot for anyone and especially carloads of families. We’ve been to this area several times and we still manage to find more of the local charm each time. Let’s stop into Lake Ave-Storm Lake and then into the rural wilderness of Northwest Iowa!

Prepare yourself for a county that has an incredible amount of public art and with unforgettable backdrops of the lake. Let’s start out in Albert City!
A scenic way to stay active is to take the walking path in Storm Lake. It hugs the shoreline and cuts through beautiful public parks that offer something unique in each one. Shady paths and sun soaked stretches in a beautiful Western Iowa lake town.
A lot of people are figuring it out when it comes to Storm Lake and authentic Mexican food. This is one of Iowa’s premier destinations for a variety of ethnic food, and we were going to dive right into this town’s culinary delights.
The Buena Vista adventure has the entertainment, scenery, lakeside meals, and a great number of memorable restaurants all over Storm Lake and throughout the entire county. I like the fact that I can enjoy an iconic lake, waterslides, steaks, tacos, and a lodge in the middle of the woods in one day. Thank you to everyone at Storm Lake United and the Buena Vista County Conservation Board who made this Gallivant happen! Who helped us discover so much more during another fantastic visit to your communities!
