*The Western Iowa county I’ve been to the most times in my life, and I’m still finding more ways to keep coming back while waltzing into places of business I’ve never been to before. Our trip to Sac 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 are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant! But first, a briefing from a certain capital of the world….
Always cling to those summer moments when they come around. We still have a few weeks of warm temps during the day and absolutely beautiful evenings ahead of us in the last days of this 2022 season. I recommend a trip to a relaxing community on the lake in Sac County. Buckle up for Black Hawk Lake in Lake View, Iowa!
Let’s Explore Lake View
There’s so many reasons to make Lake View a destination for your vacations, getaways, day trips and road trips. Boating and fishing are obviously the top reasons why folks flock to this lake, but there’s so much more to enjoy on the lakefront and in the surrounding area. A state park, put-put golf, bike rentals, walking/biking trail, a modern hotel and more!
Vacationers and lovers of the great outdoors are what brings in a lot of revenue to the area, but there’s longtime businesses that have helped to build Lake View that don’t necessarily show up at the top of your list of places to visit on your day off at the lake. However, I’m on the T-Bone Trail and we’re seeking out the agricultural landmarks that’ a part of keeping Iowa’s farming operations ticking!
Local history a’plenty on display at Lake View Historical Museum! One of the most detailed train sets in the state can be enjoyed at this museum and it gives you another look at this NW-Iowa lake town in an entertaining way.
Check-In on the Lake
Dinner in Lake View
Tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, chips and queso, pasta….Whaaaaaat? Obviously I was hinting at a Mexican restaurant endeavor, but pasta? Yup! Here comes a Lake View treat that has this area of Northwest Iowa buzzing!
Sac City for Steak
We’re on our way to the county seat for one of the biggest cuts of beef we had on the 2022 T-Bone Trail in Western Iowa. Bring it on Sac City!
An Early Sunset
It’s no secret that I’ve often traveled to these communities and I was thrilled to make a return back to some of the places I’ve enjoyed before. However, I had the opportunity to experience them in a different way with new flavors, views, picturesque horizons, business leaders and unforgettable scenes during this most recent gallivant. This county saw me grow from an infant to a returning traveler on The T-Bone Trail which makes me even more proud of Western Iowa and its people. A giant thank you to everyone in Sac County who was involved for helping coordinate one of the most memorable 24 hours I’ve ever had here. Another memorable trip back to the places that feel like home every time….
