      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!
