Will your point of trip origination be from the Cedar Rapids area? If so, my suggestion to visit the covered bridges of Madison County might be a little far for a day trip. Then again, perhaps not.
Madison County is just to the southwest of Polk County & Des Moines with excellent axis gained via either I-80 or I-35.

The next festival to celebrate them will occur in mid October so perhaps keep that in mind for another time.

Get yourself a cheap, small motorcycle... or a good motorized bike. Go touring gravel roads and explore, you will find cool places that only you and a few others will know about.

I have found cool lakes with camping amenities in the middle of nowhere on gravel roads.

You never run out of new gravel roads either, at least, it would take a while.
