    The Pine Creek Grist Mill was a great scene. What an interesting history. Good signage and well kept.

    A surprise find while out exploring Eastern Iowa on a weekend get-a-way. The Pine Grist Mill is in the middle of nowhere, but is worth the trip. Very scenic.

    Loved this place! You’d be amazed on the history of pearl buttons. I was. This is a great museum that’s also free and very informative and has lots of unknown history on the button.The women that were working here at the time were super friendly and very informative. There’s a free 30 minute tour of the place if you want to take it or just self guide yourself. Opens at 10 AM on the Saturday I was here. Nice gift shop too. Highly, highly recommend.

    Stopped at this brewery on a Sunday afternoon. Live music, with the talented Monica Austin, and a wonderful selection appetizers. Tried several of their beers and enjoyed every one of them. Can’t wait to go back and sit on the patio with a view of the Mississippi.

    Many do not know the deep artistic history in Iowa with roots in Muscatine, but the Art Center will bring you up to speed with a wonderful long-standing permanent collection and rotating temporary exhibits of local (and not so-local) artists, often containing pieces for sale. Go there and leave with a treasure, or two!

    As soon as you enter the park, park your car. Check out the cool cannons on the right, then the perennial gardens beyond and the rose gardens across the road. Then, further down the road, check out the rare Indian mounds on the left side and the sweet little bandstand. Then, down the hill, there's the fancy new city pool with water slide. And, at the bottom of the hill, the lagoon with many cute, but annoying geese and ducks. Weed Park is an awesome place to walk the dog and enjoy nature.

    Best location in town for daytime walks, including walking dog. Nice pond for fishing- have had some luck with blue gills and small bass.

    Has a nice trail for walking and biking with a sandy beach. It's great to see it turned into a park to enjoy.

    A great place to walk and see what Iowa looked like a long time ago. They are slowly taking it back to pre-plow days. The poison ivy is everywhere so if you are allergic, be careful. If your dogs get into the brush, you will need to wash the urushiol off.

    It was an easy walk from Muscatine downtown. You will have to climb some stairs to get to the top and get winded. It is a small park with some tables and chairs and a memorial to Mark Twain's stay in Muscatine. Perhaps, this could be a good spot for a picnic with views of downtown Muscatine, the Mississippi river and the bridge across the river. There are a few restaurants at the bottom of the hill.

    A very well kept golf course with economic fees. One of the better municipal courses in Iowa. Relatively open course that is forgiving your bad shots.
