On each new RAGBRAI I have found many interesting places along each day’s route … museums, monuments, historical, etc. but I’m sure I miss much along the route too because there are miles to make and the weather is sometimes iffy and does not allow much time to linger … so I’d like to start a forum with suggestions of “what to be sure not to miss”. I’ll start with Council Bluffs and hope readers will contribute their ideas.
