Designated as one of Iowa's "Great Places," Perry boasts a combination of arts, history, culture, commerce and recreation, unmatched to any other of its size! Perry's walkable downtown is home to more than 30 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, multiple arts and culture festivals, as well as several murals and public art pieces, including four sculptures along the Willis Avenue boulevard that pay tribute to Perry's historical ties to the railroad, agriculture, industry and the arts.
Discover the many treasures of Perry, including a historic boutique hotel, unique shops, destination dining, photo ops and access to miles of paved trails!
Plan an extended stay by first choosing from forty different themed rooms at Hotel Pattee where you can enjoy delicious food, bowling, a spa and various events throughout the year. Catch a round of golf, hit the trail - either the Raccoon River Valley Trail or the coming-soon connector trail to the High Trestle Trail - or immerse yourself in history at the Carnegie Library Museum or Forest Park Museum. Enjoy the many shopping and dining options, especially in the Downtown Historic and Cultural District!
