DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -Jessica O’Riley from Travel Iowa shares ideas about statewide destinations for beautiful getaways, celebrations, activities and so much more in four separate interview segments.

O’Riley’s big suggestion is to book early if you have any travel plans because busier fall and winter travel seasons are expected this year. The average U.S. traveler is planning 2-3 overnight trips in the next six months, so don’t wait if you can plan ahead.

Topics covered:

  • Part 1 features Mason City, Webster City and Charles City
  • Part 2 features destinations in Central Iowa such as Madison County/Pella/Knoxville/Boone
  • Part 3 covers Eastern Iowa (all around the QCA!)
  • Part 4 highlights winter activities and events throughout the state.
