*Iowa’s most famous summertime destination is also a great location anytime of year. Especially if you love museums, warm and cozy hotel stays and juicy steaks! Our visit to Dickinson County was funded and sponsored by the Western Iowa Tourism Region. Some of the goods, meals and services were complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
Boating, fishing, hiking trails, beaches and cannonballs from the wooden piers at the lakes all over Dickinson County are just a few of the moments you can imagine when you’re here. This region is the ideal area for anyone who loves to be on the water during their summer vacations and weekend getaways. However, Dickinson County is open year round with plenty to do while you figure out ways to keep a family active during the cooler weeks ahead.
Let’s Eat Steak
The Okoboji area is full of history and plenty of it can be seen indoors throughout its abundant museums. Step into Iowa’s musical past and hear from its legends when get to Arnolds Park!
The Lakes is an obvious choice for when you want to get a good looking boat on the water. This area of Iowa also attracts the folks who like to get their rides out on the main drag in vintage style as well. That’s why Okoboji Classic Cars is a must-see for the car and art lovers!
There is no shortage of great restaurants with the open sign on in the Okoboji area. Even during the off-peak season!
A wide selection of hotels are available all around the lakes that can offer everything you need for a relaxing getaway to Okoboji all yearlong.
