One of the things I love most about the Midwest is its number of offbeat attractions. And the Hawkeye State is no different. In fact, there are all sorts of world’s largest things in Iowa!
World’s Largest Concrete Garden Gnome
As a kid, I loved going to the botanic gardens in Chicago. Wandering the different gardens and learning about all the exotic plant varieties was always a favorite activity. So a few weeks ago when we made plans to visit Reiman Gardens in Ames, I knew I would be in for a treat.
It’s been a long time coming, but last weekend I ventured up to Ames to explore Reiman Gardens. But more than anything, I was excited to meet Elwood the World’s Largest Concrete Garden Gnome.
