Most Popular Area Attractions

Amana Colonies

The Amana Colonies are a collection of seven villages spread across 40 square miles of eastern Iowa near Coralville. German settlers, who first settled in New York State but relocated to Iowa in 1856, built and maintained the villages in the 1800s to the early 1900s.

The beautiful buildings remain in the Amana Colonies becoming a National Historic Landmark in 1965. Filled with craft shops, restaurants, a brewery, and more, the Amana Colonies are a great place to spend an afternoon.

Antique Car Museum of Iowa

Founded in 2006, the Antique Car Museum of Iowa features a 28,000 square foot showroom with over 90 cars ranging from year 1899 to the mid 1970’s, along with an early 20th century Skelly gas station. The museum can found in Coralville in eastern Iowa.

Many of the antique cars are original, “untouched by modern day techniques” – as they say. The museum also features a banquet room, ideal for those looking to host a event or get together of sorts.

Coral Ridge Mall

Set along Interstate 80, the Coral Ridge Mall is located in Coralville, located in eastern Iowa on the Iowa River. Serving as a regional mall to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, the mall covers more the one million square feet.

The Coral Ridge Mall features a 10-screen theater, the Iowa Children's Museum, an NHL regulation-sized ice skating rink – the Coral Ridge Ice Arena – and of course plenty of shopping.

Englert Theatre

Built in 1912, this classic theatre was built “to revive the finest stage and movie houses throughout the Midwest.” That they did, until a 1926 fire, restoration in the 1970s and 1980s, and then a 1999 closing all took their toll on the original materials. Reopened with community support in 2004, the Englert Theatre today hosts live performances, shows movies, and events.

The historic theatre is located in the heart of Iowa City in eastern Iowa, and is a proud part the state’s entertainment history. Drive in for a visit from nearby Coralville. 

Herbert Hoover Presidential Library & Museum

Enjoy the literary festivities when you drive in from nearby Coralville, another charming eastern Iowa city.

Kinnick Stadium

The 70,000-seat stadium is routinely referred to as one of the best football game day experiences in the nation – be sure to visit Kinnick Stadium. A 2006 renovation of the original 1929 structure refreshed the classic brickwork and updated many facilities but kept the “old school” feel.

The stadium is the proud home to the University of Iowa Hawkeyes, where they compete in the Big 10 Conference. Catch a game this fall and watch the Hawkeyes take on all comers. Your tour of eastern Iowa isn't complete without a trip to Kinnick Stadium; drive in from nearby Coralville.

Mormon Handcart Brigade Site

After stepping off the train in Iowa City, a group of 1,300 Mormon religious affiliates set about making camp in preparation for the longer trek west – on foot. Here, they fashioned up handcarts out of native woods that would enable them to haul supplies and cover about 15 miles per day on their eventual path to Salt Lake City.

The park offers some history on their campsite and the handcarts they built, along with some excellent hiking and biking trails. Visit eastern Iowa and take in some of Iowa’s grand history at the Mormon Handcart Brigade Site while you’re at it. Travel in from nearby Coralville and enjoy your visit to eastern Iowa.

Museum of Natural History

The museum was founded in 1858, remaining on the University of Iowa campus in the MacBride hall ever since. Any visit to Iowa City is incomplete without taking in some its natural history as well.
