Cedar Rapids Road Trips
Posted 24 February 2014 - 03:18 AM
Over the years, I've alway enjoyed hitting up Beloit for a couple games while en-route to either Milwaukee or Chicago for baseball road trips (or bluesfests, ribfests, really any excuse to see the country). Did you know the 1st bowling alley is in Milwaukee? I got the pictures. I haven't been down to Cedar Rapids yet, and was wondering how the trip/city was for that type of excursion. Is the area known for anything, or has anyone found an interesting byway on the way down from the TCs? Good places to stay, good places to eat? Brewerys? Speed trap country? All that sort of thing.

And yes, serious speed trap warning. Speeds on I-380 through CR are photo-enforced. Exceed the posted speed limit through town by more than a few mph and you'll be getting a letter in the mail letting you know how much money you will be contributing to the local economy even after you've returned home.
Actually, I posted an article last April that's still relatively current. You can find it by clicking here.
Hope you can make it down for some baseball this summer.
