Favorite thing: Iowa City is home to the University of Iowa. The campus is laid out on the side of a hill in some parts, or in others, overlooking the landscape from the top of it. Nice looking campus. The Old Capitol building is also right there, next to the main part of town/on campus.
Favorite thing: Becauseof the U of I, it is possible to see musicals, concerts and plays. Both student productions and touring companies and world class performers. Hancher Auditorium has been presenting shows from around the world for 30 years. The Old Capital in the center of downtown is open to tours.
