—Reedy Press is pleased to announce the release of our newest guidebook, Secret Iowa: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure, by Megan Bannister.

Some claim there's nothing to see in flyover country. But take a closer look and you'll discover that Iowa is home to more than just cornfields. In fact, across the Hawkeye State you'll encounter hidden gems and secret spots abound.

For instance, do you know where you can find the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright designed hotel in the world? What about how much the World's Largest Popcorn Ball weighs? And why did the Los Angeles Lakers pay to build a basketball court in the small town of Carroll? Dive in and discover the state's offbeat history and quirky places through Secret Iowa: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure.

Set course for larger-than-life attractions like Albert the Bull, the World's Largest Strawberry, and the Grotto of the Redemption. Learn more about Grant Wood's connection to Iowa by visiting his former home and studio, or travel through time and space to the place where StarTrek's Captain James T. Kirk will be born in 2233. Even at some of the state's most well-known places, you'll discover hidden histories and unique stories that are not often shared.

Local author and travel writer Megan Bannister uncovered some of the state's wackiest attractions to guide your adventure around Iowa. Buckle up, fill up your tank and get ready for an offbeat road trip full of the state's best kept secrets.
