We are always looking for more great content to share with travelers. All blog posts submitted will be mentioned on the Iowa Tourism Office’s social media accounts and may be used as content on our main website, traveliowa.com.

Helpful Tips:

  • Shorter paragraphs are easier to read.
  • Headline should give a good idea of what the post is about or entice readers to learn more.
  • What should you blog about?
    • A day in the life of your attraction, event, etc.
    • Behind the scenes of a new exhibit, event, etc.
