Big Bopper Crash Site
Located just five miles north of Clear Lake, the fateful plane crash site that became known worldwide as “The Day the Music Died” is open to the public as memorial to the famous musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper.
Although the site is open to the public, it’s also located on private property, so visiting hours can fluctuate and guests are asked to respect the owners’ rights. Check out the large, stainless steel guitar and “Buddy-styled” black-rimmed glasses constructed as a memorial. Visit the rock 'n' roll memorial on your next visit to central Iowa.
