Description

Popularized by a best-selling potboiler-turned-Hollywood blockbuster, the Bridges of Madison County have also become an overnight sensation as a travel destination. Seekers of vanishing Americana will find that the bridges make a great jumping-off point for other charming historic diversions clustered within a short drive of Des Moines, among them a lovingly restored hotel that's gaining great word of mouth from discriminating travelers, a living history museum, and a vintage passenger locomotive excursion across a breathtakingly tall trestle.
