Visit Spirit Lake Iowa

What do you think when you hear “Iowa”? Certainly, you think this? (Link to another Iowa). Consequently, you need to visit Spirit Lake Iowa! Seems like lots of lakes when driving around. Great area to visit (in summer!)

Iowa Cornfield
Isn’t this what you think Iowa is?


Spirit Lake

Spirit Lake’s size makes it the second largest in this lakes area. In contrast, Lake Okoboji’s size is nearly double. The smaller lakes fit in around the area.

  Did you know that blogs are typically reader supported? So, buy me a hot chocolate! Or not!.

Finally, apartments and condos built on Spirit Lake. Much of this is summer occupied.


Lake Okoboji

Lake Okoboji dominates the other lakes. Smaller lakes make for a beautiful area and for more lakeshore as well. Since everyone wants to live on the “biggest”, property on Lake Okoboji is the most expensive.

  Want to see a shop for my road trip photos? You can have them printed as wall art or puzzles. They also work on coffee mugs, t-shirts and more! So, take a look. Maybe you'll see something you will like!

Short post. Iowa vacationing isn’t something many of you think about. Finally, Lake Okoboji makes a great place to spend a weekend. Or a week.

      Dan, Sorry I didn’t get to approve this one. Been a lot busier than before I retired! I’ve got to get going with the blog again. Taking a bit of a break I guess. Going to Des Moines (yes, Iowa again) to see Bob Seger in concert. I’ll have to blog about that!
