Set out 25 miles east of the center of Waterloo and discover the neighborhood of Independence.
Wapsipinicon Mill contains an impressive range of historical exhibitions, allowing visitors to experience the events and stories that made this area. Want to stay nearby? Where convenience is concerned, look no further than the Best Western Plus Independence Inn & Suites and Super 8 Independence.
After a few hours of pounding the pavement in Independence, let your feet lead the way to R & R Cafe for a cup of coffee and an indulgent treat. If something heartier is needed, try American legion post 30 for an appetizing meal. After the sun has set, it's time to try out the bars! A preferred neighborhood hangout is Pat's Tavern.
