*One of the best reasons to explore Northwest Iowa is all the towns you’re going to discover along the way. That’s always our specialty on The Iowa Gallivant! Our visit to Pocahontas County was sponsored and funded by the Western Iowa Tourism Region. Some of the meals, services and goods were complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s gallivant!
Meet me where highways 3, 4, and 7 find themselves in one county full of Iowa’s classic roadside attractions and big-beautiful meals. The rural highways of this region will always bring you to memorable area’s with Pocahontas County being one of those delicious and unforgettable road trips you can take. This is where some wonderful small town cookin’ meets a variety of small town shoppin’!
Main Street-Pocahontas has ample opportunities to get some much needed shopping done in a fun way. And you know what season is coming, too! But don’t forget that you can partake in your Poky shopping spree anytime of year. Especially for a visit to one of Iowa’s most unique shops that you’ll find anywhere!
Flower shops can produce some items for anyone and I’m not talking about everything being floral. Denise’s Flowers & Gifts is where you go for a bouquet and a present to go along with it!
Heads up, sports fans! Main Street-Poky has a shop that can make any fan wide eyed while getting them to pump their fists with enjoyment. Get ready for memorabilia, autographs, cards and more from 90Ten Hobby!
Let’s work off our lunch a little bit and go lakeside under the Western Iowa skies. It’s another opportunity to utilize another one of Iowa’s important county parks!
Let’s Eat Steak
Did you see that Ribeye??? Oh, baby! Tavern 119 is showing everyone how amazing it can be for dinnertime in Fonda, Iowa. They were excellent hosts and the kitchen crew was obviously packed with talent. Load hash browns are a staple in Western Iowa, and they’re perfect with juicy and perfectly cooked Ribeyes from Tavern 119. This restaurant needs to be on your radar if you’re a true steak lover!
Pocahontas County showed us that you can have an entire day of shopping and entertainment just on Main Street-Poky, and we didn’t even mention all the restaurants you can dine at. Plus, this area also showed us that you can have an amazing steak supper and memorable dessert in one of the smallest communities on HWY 7. Rural towns in Western Iowa have impressed us over and over with their incredible cooking and variety of ways to keep us happily well fed, entertained, intrigued, eager for discovering more while continuously sparking our imagination. Pocahontas County did all of that for us once again and we’re ready for another gallivant!
