Wowwwww. How crazy is that?! And it's only an hour away from Estherville. It's right between Estherville and Fort Dodge. We are SO going there. It might be a far trip for you guys to come... but hey... as long as we're in the same state as you it's a good thing, right!
You can finally stop begging me to move to Iowa. Guess what? I AM MOVING TO IOWA. Okay?! Happy now?! ;) Yeah... I'm happy now, too.
If we meet halfway-ish, it looks like it would be Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Have you been there?
They have a "Frontier Days" event held every year in June and we should totally go to it. They have a parade, live entertainment, and probably make you walk 3 miles through the woods with two buckets on a stick to fetch water from the nearest river. Can't wait!!
And, according to Wikipedia, Fort Dodge is the retail MECCA of the area! To find out more about this, I found this expansive list of shopping opportunities in the town!
All jokes aside, it would be a two hour drive for both of us which is totally easy enough to do on a weekend and make an event out of it! I love exploring small towns and I can't wait for this new adventure. I'm going to continue this "Iowa" series and see what else we discover!
