*We live for the days when we can make it to SW-Iowa anytime of year! Our visit to Fremont County was sponsored and funded by the Western Iowa Tourism Region. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
When was the last time you went to the extreme? I have a few times, in Iowa, and I lived to tell the stories every time. You see, I’m talking about extreme Southwest Iowa and it’s communities, breathtaking scenic overlooks and mouthwatering meals in Fremont County! There’s much to do here, and we did our best to pack in as much as possible in just a few hours in the Loess Hills and beyond!
Let’s Eat Steak
You don’t need to book a flight to Australia to see Sidney. Just head to Southwest Iowa and keep the passport at home. This county seat is in one of the most scenic areas of Iowa and worth the trip anytime of year. See you on the Loess Hill National Scenic Byway for a steak, my friends!

We’ve already mentioned the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway so let’s give you a little sample of what this county has to offer when it comes to Western Iowa majesty. If you’re looking for a perfect launchpad to start your exploring in this region, then Fremont County is a great place to make it happen.
Into the Hills
This summer we took one of America’s greatest scenic byway road trips anyone can experience, and it was right here in Western Iowa. This is a sample of where we started, and you’ll see more down the road as we highlight all seven counties on the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway!
Taking on Tabor
Tabor is a town directly on the county line and it’s home to some entertaining and delicious breaks during a scenic byway getaway. The scenery is what pulls you into the Loess Hills, but the towns along the way provide a lot of memorable stops to make your road trip even better. Especially when you sit down for a delicious made from scratch meal at Yeya’s Scratch Kitchen!
How about some dessert and a coffee when you’re done with some ultimate stick to your ribs meal in Tabor! Take a short walk down the street because you’ll always have room for something at Shakey Grounds!
You can see why we love the Loess Hills and this was just a small sample from one of 7 counties on this scenic byway throughout Iowa’s far western boarder. I’ll travel for made from scratch mashed potatoes, juicy steaks, huge ice cream portions and beautiful overlooks all yearlong. Wait until we show you the rest of our road trip throughout the Loess Hills so stay tuned!
