Iowa’s Worst Tourist Attraction. Do You Agree?
Is it "Iowa's Largest Frying Pan", "Field of Dreams", "The Bridges of Madison County"?
The travel website Insider is a travel website and they took every state and determined which tourist attraction is the worst in each one. The one that Insider picked for the state of Iowa might get Trekkie nerds in an up roar.
In the little down of Riverside, there lies a mark for the "Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk". Of course Kirk (William Shatner) from the original Star Trek.
Where a lot of Trekkies cant wait to be in Riverside, IA on March 22, 2228, Insider hated on the idea of putting a gravestone-like plaque in the middle of the town. But it really has been a staple for the town. Riverside even has TrekFest coming at the end of June.
See the video below to find the monument dedicated to the "Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk" in Riverside, Iowa.
