"Strolling through history" Urbandale by worldglobetrotter

Urbandale Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 8 photos

Living history and lots of food!

During a recent trip through Iowa, we stopped in Urbandale, Iowa, a suburb of Des Moines. We travelled back in time at Living History Farms and stuffed ourselves at Machine Shed.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Fun for the whole family
  • Cons:Large groups of school kids can get rowdy at times
  • In a nutshell:All in all, it's well worth it.
