Welcome to Decorah, Iowa

Nestled in the Northeast part of the state, Decorah is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unique spots on the Iowa map.

Here's what Agricultural Digest had to say about Decorah:

Rooted in Norwegian culture, this town is home to the country’s largest museum about an immigrant group (Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum) and flaunts many beautiful spots in nature, including Dunning’s Springs Park. It’s also a college town, thanks to Luther College.

Food Network Shows That Have Been To South Dakota

Living here in the upper midwest we are don't end up on national TV shows very often. That's probably a good thing in the long run.

But it is pretty cool when something from South Dakota is on TV. Three shows from the Food Network family of shows have showcased South Dakota restaurants.

You may remember when Guy Fieri and Diners Drive-ins and Dives was in Sioux Falls in June of 2020 to visit some of our city's unique establishments.

A few years ago the Travel Channel Show Food Paradise visited Deadwood.

If you remember the 'golden age' of Foot Network, back when Rachel Ray was the queen of the channel, she took her show $40 a Day to Rapid City in 2005.
