The Strawberry Gateway

By Linda Tancs

Strawberry Point, Iowa is home to the world’s largest–what else–strawberry.  A gateway to Northeast Iowa, you get the best of two worlds.  On the one hand, you’ll see the flat lands to the South and West; scenic rolling hills are to the North and East.  Besides the obligatory photo in town beside the World’s Largest Strawberry, there’s plenty else to see in Clayton County.  The kids will love Spook Cave, offering 35-minute tours.  Nearby is the campground, featuring locally handcrafted Amish log cabins.  Looking for something less rustic?  Then visit the Franklin Hotel, a slice of quintessential small town charm.
