Friday I'm leaving with the family for a night in Waterloo, followed by a night in Decorah, followed by a night in Dubuque, then back to Des Moines.

That's a couple hours of driving each day, and so far my plans are only to visit a museum in each location, plus a quick stop by Effigy Mounds and Pikes Peak - and other nearby state parks.

If anyone has any other stops to recommend, or things to see, or places to eat, let me know thanks.

On your way from Decorah you might want to try the Gunder Burger at the Irish Shanti. great food and interesting place. They have a website you can google.

If you are going to Effigy mounds, you will be near McGregor Iowa and there is a wonderful restaurant called Old Man River Restaurant and Brewery. You can google it for more info and menu.

In Dubuque, Eagle Point Park is worth going to.
