Loess Hills Driving Tour

October 06, 2019
Driving tour of the scenic Loess hills of western Iowa
We invite you to join us for a driving tour that will celebrate some of the great roads and wonderful scenery that we have available to us here in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. This event will allow each of us to enjoy our cars as we tour some of the less traveled roads in our area. We will also have the opportunity to see geologic formations that are unique to our region. We plan to gather in the morning at a shopping center that includes a gas station, a convenience store, and a popular diner (Sugar’s Diner) so we can all meet, catch up with each other, get provisions, and of course kick tires and see each other’s cars. The Driving Tour will take about 3 hours, and will end at a restaurant in Sioux City where we will all meet up for a mid-day dinner. The plan is to meet at 9:00 a.m. at the K-Mart Shopping Center on U.S. Route 6 in Council Bluffs. From Omaha, follow U.S. Route 6 East through Council Bluffs; the shopping center is located 6.4 miles east of the Missouri River. From I-80 in Iowa, take Exit 8, and proceed west on U.S. Route 6 for 1.3 miles to the shopping center. The address is: 2803 E Kanesville Blvd, Council Bluffs, IA 51503. Please park in the northeast corner of the parking lot, near the shopping center entrance. We will have a Driver/Navigator meeting at 9:30 a.m. (Warning: There are red light cameras in Council Bluffs.)
