Beautiful land, that’s the definition of the word Iowa (according to the 1987 General Assembly). Summer is half way over, but there’s still a lot of time to get out and enjoy the treasures Iowa has to offer. The Iowa DOT is making exploring the state’s beauty a little easier by designating routes as scenic or heritage byways. Today, Iowa has nine state-designated byways and two nationally designated byways.
