Someday, hopefully sooner than later, this COVID-19 nightmare will be over. Hopefully, we'll all be able to enjoy a summer of fun!

In the meantime, you can explore our great state of Iowa from home, by visiting virtually. Check out all the fun in our future at Travel!

From the comfort of your couch, you visit Iowa's 99 parks. Their family fun guide includes a "Family Fun Pack", "Get Moving" guide, "Fishing 101" guide, "Car Fun Pack" and a "Camping & Recipe Booklet".

You can pass the time watching wildlife cams like this live deer feeder cam located in southern Iowa, check out the Blank Park Zoo's aquarium webcam and the ospreys in Okoboji's webcam. How about the National River Museum's otter cam and of course, the globally popular, Decorah Eagle cam.

You can always visit a museum virtually or learn something new with live streaming educational sessions and if the kids are driving you crazy, download some educational activities to keep them busy. Finally, you can order a hard copy of the Iowa Travel Guide or view the digital version of the Travel Guide and start planning your trip to visit Iowa, because someday life will return to "normal" and we can get back to enjoying everything Iowa has to offer IN PERSON. #THISISIOWA
