Miles and Miles of Magnificent Views

IOWA COUNTY ENCOMPASSES SO MUCH OF THE CHARACTER OF WISCONSIN AS A WHOLE: ROLLING HILLS, WELCOMING STATE PARKS, FLOURISHING FARMS, AND AWARD-WINNING WINES AND CHEESES.   IT IS STEEPED IN THE HISTORY OF WISCONSIN'S EARLY YEARS AND HOME TO A THEATER COMPANY THAT'S BECOME ONE OF THE MOST CELEBRATED IN THE MIDWEST.

For nature lovers, Iowa County’s gem is Governor Dodge State Park, just north of Dodgeville. One of Wisconsin’s largest state parks, it has 5,000 hilly acres to hike and is a popular destination for camping, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and horseback riding.

Iowa County’s historical significance also revolves around renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Taliesin is the 800-acre property near Spring Green where Wright had his home and studio. It offers programs on organic living and the intersection of nature, culture, and construction design.

Theater lovers, meanwhile, flock to the nearby American Players Theatre, where a highly lauded company of actors performs plays by Shakespeare and more current playwrights in an open-air theatre and a smaller, enclosed venue throughout the summer.

Iowa County also is home to the House on the Rock, built in the 1940s atop a 60-foot chimney of rock near Spring Green by Madison native Alex Jordan.
