National Balloon Classic, Indianola
Imagine more than a hundred magnificent hot-air balloons suspended over the horizon. Vast glacial ecosystems woven throughout a landlocked state. Vibrant river towns with historic neighborhoods and enticing arts scenes. To the uninitiated, these images offer a surprising collection of experiences worthy of exploration. But Iowans know: No matter the thrill you seek, it’s waiting for you in this small-but-marvelous paradise.
