The easy-going Midwest state of Iowa is characterised by gently undulating fields and plains, dotted with many scenic parks, lakes and recreation areas, such as East Okoboji, West Okoboji (Iowa's deepest natural lake), Spirit Lake and Clear Lake.Its rich cultural heritage can be seen in the German Amana Colonies, with their many historic sites and museums. The tulips of Pella reflect the town's Dutch past and Des Moines, Iowa's capital, was clearly named by French explorers.
