Who would imagine that two side-by-side Iowa towns would enjoy fame because of two musicians? Mason City because Meredith Willson was born there, and Clear Lake because Buddy Holly died there.











We began our day by heading to Clear Lake to see the Surf Ballroom, where Buddy Holly …

Already we've been to the new craft beer shop in MC called Mason City Brewing. There's another in Clear Lake that is only open weekend evenings, so we'll try to make ...

This morning we awoke after a restless (Ben said, "anticipatory ") night of sleep. A new bed and new place is always hard the first night.

We had a light breakfast with Henry and Tricia and then attended an hour ...

    This remodeled hotel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a happy surprise in Mason City. They say it's the only hotel designed by Wright in operation today. The place is stunning and incredibly comfortable. Make sure to get a park-view room. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area, or looking for a reason to visit.
