Don't forget that staying in just one place will only ever furnish you with a narrow glimpse into the wider natural and cultural makeup of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to delve into Central Iowa's sights and attractions. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find Corning, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Winterset 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest.
Organise transportation and head to Winterset, a transport and retail hub for the area, approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) away from Creston. The city has a wide range of tourist attractions, such as John Wayne Birthplace Museum, Winterset Town Hall and Imes Bridge. Roseman Bridge, Holliwell Bridge and Cedar Bridge are also worth a visit before returning to Creston.
Spend a few hours exploring Central Iowa's history museums. These are excellent spots to hang out, particularly when the weather is less than perfect.
Take your own gear or rent some when you get here, and discover the local water activities. Tubing is an option. Another good option is boating.
For those who plan on arriving and departing by air, keep in mind that the most convenient major airport is Des Moines International Airport, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northeast of Creston.
