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.

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.
