Clear Lake, Iowa is home to family fun all year around. With spring here in North Iowa, families will begin to swarm in for warm weather fun. If you and your family are beach enthusiasts you will quickly embrace Clear Lake and all it has to offer. From the beaches to all the fun you can imagine on a lake, Clear Lake is a fantastic MidWest travel destination. And in case you don’t know, Clear Lake is located about 30 miles South of the Iowa/Minnesota Border, right off of I-35.
This family friendly community happens to be in my back yard. I live approximately 15 miles South East of Clear Lake. I grew up on the lake, as our boys did. We boated a lot while our boys were younger. We not only enjoyed boating, but we enjoyed fishing and water skiing. Clear lake is a community that will welcome you with open arms.
The world famous Surf Ballroom is also in Clear Lake. With events and concerts happening on a regular basis, chances are you will be able to take one in while you are in town. Buddy Holly enthusiasts will want to make a trek out to the “Crash Site.” This memorial is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the short hike!

There are people in the area, but it is possible to find your own little peace and quiet while visiting Clear Lake. Do you want to know more about Clear Lake, Iowa?
