Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Iowa Off the Beaten Path show you the Hawkeye State you never knew existed. Sample the history—and delectable dishes—of Dubuque with the Victorian House Tour and Progressive Dinner. Visit the World's Smallest Church, a stone chapel built on a country road near Festina in 1885 and containing four tiny pews. Or enjoy the rebirth of the Iowa wine industry with a trip along the Iowa Wine Trail. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
