Get the door, it's the liquor store
Okay, be honest — how many people can pinpoint Iowa on a map? The joke’s on you, though, because while... Iowa isn’t often a tourist destination (it ranks in the bottom ten for annual visitors, even behind North Dakota), the Hawkeye State embodies the ultimate humblebrag. Farming is the largest industry in the state, so during the summer months, Iowans (also called Hawkeyes) enjoy some of the best farmer's markets in the country. Seriously, the farmer’s market in Des Moines has more than 300 stalls. Locals indulge in country fairs, drive-in movie theatres and natural wonders like Crystal Lake Cave and views of the Mississippi River, all without the hustle and overcrowding of coastal cities. One thing midwesterners do best is lake parties, a tradition best facilitated with coolers packed with local craft brews. Hawkeyes can use Drizly’s user-friendly app to order seasonal beers from one of Iowa’s more than 100 breweries. With over 30 store partners throughout the state, from Council Bluffs to Cedar Rapids, you can find local specialties like Blue Ox vodka or classic favorites like Black Velvet Canadian whisky and Fireball.
