Hmmm....Gaze upon corn fields, cow tip, gaze upon more corn fields.....hehe...My mom is from Iowa and our family has been back there atleast 100 times. She's from a very small town near Des Moines where there's NOTHING to do. I'm sure they have bowling, bars, clubs and stuff like that in Des Moines for you to do. Have fun! :)

yes people who go cow tipping actually attempt to push the cow over - because cows sometimes fall asleep standing up, so they have no sense of balance when you go to push them over, but it is actually really cruel because you can seriously hurt the cow...

betsy lives in iowa, but she's not on the forum all that much lately... my FI got one of his bachelors degrees in iowa and when we went there for a reunion last summer literally the only thing to do was go to a bar or go bowling... so my advice is to bring your laptop and settle in on BDW hhahaha

Sorry about the whole cow tipping thing, I was TOTALLY KIDDING and being sarcastic. That's just my personality...I am basically saying that there isn't a whole hell of a lot to do in Iowa. I'm sure though in Des Moines there are bars, movie theatres, and bowling atleast. Even the tiny town my mom's from has a bowling alley. You might have to get creative! Just enjoy the warm nights, and catch some lightning bugs or something.

I'm from Iowa. It can be kind of fun in the summer. See if you can find a state fair. There will be dancing and rides and its always warm. There are fireflies at night too!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
