I don't live there, but I have been there. There are pigs and corn. That's it.

Im organizing a group of customers to go over there next month, they will be going to Des Monies, Waterloo and Moline, to visit the John Deere factories (I work for JD here in Australia) and they want a "scenic drive" from Moline back to somewhere else, where they will fly out. They were thinking of Minneapolis, but is there anywhere better?

They are farmers mostly, so pigs and corn are right up their alley!

All of Iowa is scenic. Part of the state flooded a while back so you may want to figure out what part that was and avoid it. I'm sure your farmer friends aren't going to enjoy seeing a trailer house stuck in a tree.

That sounds like the tour I'd like to be on. When a tornado came through here I drove around to see all the vehicles on top of second story houses.

Sadly I live in Iowa, and grew up in Waterloo. Not much in Waterloo, but The Great River Road along the Mississippi can be scenic. Your best bet in Waterloo would be to tour the Donald Street site, get on the bus and leave. however if you plan on hitting the bars, I have suggestions.

That and the Iowa State fair from Aug 7-17 which should be a good time and worth a trip. Lots of fried food on sticks and big farm animals.
