The website Pure Wow came up with a list of the most beautiful place to visit in all 50 states, and the pick for Iowa is definitely a good one!

We have a bunch of amazing places to enjoy nature here in Iowa, but which one is the most beautiful of all? Well, according to Pure Wow, it's Pikes Peak State Park. Located right on the Mississippi River in McGregor, Iowa, Pikes Peak has some absolutely stunning views. The park extends almost 1,000 acres, and features a 500-foot bluff that overlooks the Mississippi. According to Wikipedia, it is also part of a larger complex of parks, including The Effigy Mounds National Monument, The Yellow River State Forest, The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge and the Driftless Area National Wildlife Refuge. The park allows for hiking, biking, camping, cross-country skiing, and other outdoorsy activities. Whether you go in the summer or the winter, Pikes Peak is absolutely breathtaking! Check out some of these awesome pictures from the park:
