Southwest Iowa offers hundreds of things
to do and see and enjoy. No matter when you visit, the area offers
something for everyone. Fish the lakes that are crowded with numerous
species, bag your limit of pheasants, hike the Loess Hills, catch a rodeo at
Sidney's Championship Rodeo, drive Western Skies Scenic Byways, watch
millions of waterfowl at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge, or find luck at
Council Bluffs' casinos.
The area is served by a regional
commercial airport, several smaller municipal airports, a multi-county
regional transit system, state-of-the-art medical care, excellent schools,
