It's just like the movie, not much to see. A baseball field beside a corn field with a nice looking dated country house/farm house.Jason said:I'm going to check out the Field of Dreams this summer, even though I've heard it's not what it's cracked up to be.
My friend lives in Maquoketa in east-central Iowa (not for from the Field of Dreams) and she told me that the guy let the basbell diamonds grow over. She said there's really not much there anymore. Just word on the street though. I DID hear that you can go to Madison county and still sit on the same toilet that Clint Eastwood sat on in THAT movie.flatiron94 said:Its worth a visit. If you have seen the movie its pretty cool.
Are you being sarcastic? That's a serious question. Sprawling suburbs and office parks? I went on a "Big Ten road trip" with some friends from Michigan State, and we went out to Iowa. After the journey of cornfields from Indiana, Illinois, and finally Iowa, we got to Iowa City. Great college town. So we decided to visit Iowa's other well known college in Ames. We went through Des Moines. I visited Jordan Creek, and saw some of downtown. Des Moines had an impressive downtown for its size, but loads of surface parking in the southern and western portions of downtown. Outside of that, I was really disappointed with how much Des Moines did sprawl. Especially in the western and northern suburbs like West Des Moines, Urbandale, and Akeney.Was in Des Moines just a couple weeks back and drove through town. Has some nice high rises but what really impressed me were the freeways and wide lanes leading out to the sprawling suburbs. I was surprised how far out Des Moines does stretch and the construction or business parks on the outer edge. I then drove to Lincoln for a business trip.
