We Google RV parks, use satellite imagery and reviews, but just never know what we’ll get – and Lazy Acres was a real hit. It was a farm, it looks like, and is run by two families – two sisters and their husbands.
This place was fixed up so nice, with little figurines all over. We played miniature golf again, I finally won.
We found two family restaurants and the Map Room in Cedar Rapids.
On the way back from dinner the first day, we went to a quilt shop in downtown Vinton. Then, we realized that we were in the “Corn Canning Capital” and drove around. We loved this carving outside the Library, it was a tree that had died.
We saw a lot more here than we thought we would, the Ice House Museum in Cedar Falls, the John Deere Tractor and Engine Museum in Waterloo, and the National Czech & Slovak Museum and Library in the Czech Village in Cedar Rapids. Oh, and we saw Iowa’s largest frying pan in Brandon. These pictures are from the Ice House Museum.
We ran across the John Deere Tractor and Engine Museum and stopped in. On the way back to Lazy Acres, we stopped by Iowa’s largest frying pan.
On our last day, we went to Cedar Rapids and the Czech Village.
We had to participate – so I painted rocks while we were there, and left a few.
