Iowa

Geolocation

To the east of Lake Charles, is the quaint town of Iowa, (pronounced eye'-oh-way).  The history of Iowa is filled with stories of the early Midwestern Settlers from Kansas, Illinois and Iowa to the French Canadians (Cajuns) to Jean Lafitte’s pirates along the Old Spanish Trail. The railroad that cut through this country, brought settlers who were lured to the prairie land for rice farming, cattle raising and later oil fields. While visiting Iowa, take the opportunity to sample Acadian Creole cuisine or visit with local merchants. Enjoy City Park, or if you're in the mood for shopping, you'll definitely want to visit the indoor outlet mall. If your visit falls during the third weekend in March, you can enjoy the celebration of the Iowa Rabbit Festival, which celebrates the area’s rabbit industry, and the festivities are complete with activities, live Cajun music, mouthwatering authentic foods, pageants and carnival rides.
