Things to do in Ames

What about a road trip to the Madison County covered bridges south of Des Moines? Looks like its 30-40 miles south, plus the birthplace of John Wayne is there. Couple hour roadtrip.


Madison County is a fair stretch from Ames but definitely could be worked into your approach or return trip if I35 is involved.

Winterset Iowa is home to the so-called "Bridges of Madison County" movie and book (Clint Eastwood movie) and truly has several original covered bridges. John Wayne's birthplace is in Winterset.
