My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

Iowa Map

Yay, more maps! The Iowa map is complete. Iowa is home to a wide variety of roadside attractions, so if you are planning a trip to Iowa and love more than just big stuff (like clock museums), do some research ahead of time. Iowa lays claim to some delicious big stuff; The World's Largest Strawberry, The World's Largest Popcorn Ball, The World's Largest Ice Cream Sundae, and The World's Largest Bull (Albert the Bull). Mmmmmmm......cow.

Thanks to Vast Wasteland for the pic of Albert.

One of the best, if not the best, small town claims to fame is Riverside's "Future Birthplace of James T. Kirk". They even had a model built of the USS...uhhh...Riverside, yeah that's the ticket, which has an uncanny resemblance to the USS Enterprise.

As always, if I missed something, let me know.
