Stopped at the Music Man Square in Mason City, Iowa, the hometown of Meredith Willson, the writer and composer of the Music Man musical. If you’ve ever seen the show, or even watched the movie, you owe it to yourself to stop by this place.
First of all, Main Street is recreated…entirely indoors! With a music museum and full gift store completing the experience, it is well-worth the small admission price, which also includes a tour of Willson’s boyhood home, right next door.
Super great experience, but if you haven’t yet, see The Music Man before you visit. A must-see show for a must-see experience.
These two farms are a fair representation of what we saw across Iowa. We never got tired of seeing these iconic representations of the Iowa farm. Many, many farms were well over a hundred years old. Loved seeing every one.
