“Experience and explore Iowa in ways never before thought possible” is the invitation extended by ISU Extension and Outreach educational travel courses. The courses, created and taught by community development specialist Diane Van Wyngarden, include history, stories and insights about each community while opening doors to private homes and places typically not accessible to the public.
The 2013 travel schedule includes tours of Iowa’s uncommon utopian communities, historic towns along the Upper Mississippi River, and a three-state tour by river and rail of three signature Midwest cities. The courses are geared for lifelong learners as part of the national Road Scholar nonprofit organization. Registration is now open.
