Looking for a weekend getaway close to home? Located just an hour and a half from Des Moines, Omaha, and Sioux City, our charming community will transport you to a scene right out of a Hallmark movie. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the refreshing, rural Iowa life. We have a robust Main Street with unique shops, restaurants, and attractions to keep children and adults entertained. We hope you’ll enjoy Manning for a day, a week, or a lifetime.
Located centrally between Des Moines and Omaha on U.S. Highway 71 and close to Interstate 80, Audubon residents and visitors alike “Live Large” with year-round activities including art, museums, youth activities, and sports. Stay active with golf, disc golf, trap shoot, figure 8 and mud races, and ride, run, or walk the 21-mile, hard surfaced T-Bone Trail. Visit the John James Audubon statue, Veterans Memorial, WPA mural, Art Deco Audubon County courthouse, or Albert, the world’s largest bull. During your visit, we invite you to enjoy these great places to eat, shop, and stay.
