Jordan and Fran are a couple of date night enthusiasts focused on supporting local while searching for craft cocktails, delicious food and fun events all over Iowa. Their Instagram account showcases many locally owned businesses across the state and encourages others to get out and support local. Follow them @iowadatenight for more inspiration around Iowa.

With over 17 years of marriage under our belts, we’re no strangers to a night out together and are always on the hunt for our next unique date night. Whether it’s dinner and drinks, exploring a new bike trail, or a little road trip to somewhere new, it’s all about local with us.

We’ve made it to many parts of Iowa but still have some areas we need to visit. Inspired by Travel Iowa’s five travel areas, we’re sharing a date idea in each region - some have already been checked off our list and a couple we have yet to explore… but we’ll get to all of them in due time!
