Mark with the Wolters World channel on YouTube recently paid a visit to Iowa.  During his time in the state, he told his subscribers all about the beauty and history Iowa has to offer.  However, he strongly advises viewers to avoid making certain mistakes when traveling to the Hawkeye state.

The Wolters World video is literally called "The Don'ts of Visiting Iowa."  Mark identifies an entire list of things that tourists should totally avoid or say when they're visiting the state. Some of the things mentioned in the video even made me laugh.

These are "The Don'ts" of Iowa that stood out to me in the video:

  • Don't Expect Cell Phone Service Everywhere. 
  • Don't Call Des Moines "Dez Moinez." 
  • Don't Think Iowa Is All Corn
  • Don't Forget To Get Some Breakfast Pizza (Mark specifically talks about the breakfast pizza from Casey's.)
  • Don't Put Ketchup On Your Maid Rate
  • Don't Forget To Fill Up On Gas
  • Don't Call Iowa Uneducated
  • Don't Hit The Horses Or Buggies
  • Don't Doubt Iowa Pride

I would agree about not expecting a lot of cell phone service. Trust me, I've had problems when I'm driving on the Iowa back roads. Filling up on gas isn't a bad idea either because there is sometimes quite a distance between exits and towns in rural Iowa. You just never know what to expect! Mispronouncing Des Moines is also a huge deal! You'll be immediately corrected!

Overall, this video really makes Iowa rather distinct. Check out the video for yourself to see if you agree with Wolters World.
