This site will go beyond the tourism board and share Iowa's unique beauty. Featuring “been there done that- and you should too” stories from across the state, an event calendar and easy search by area of Iowa and type of activity. This prize would build the site, pay writers, support promotion and cover some start up costs. The goal is to share Iowa's beauty, fun and culture with those in Iowa, who often leave for vacation, and across the nation. My dream is that this small site will positively promote Iowa, bring tourism to small towns that may get "lost" to travelers and provide a place for people who want to share their Iowa adventures, photos, videos and the beauty of the state. This site will be an extension of my popular Family Rambling travel site. Plans include a Facebook page and Twitter ID when the site is close to launch.
