Trains, Trails and Treasures...Travel Boone County! And discover the wide variety of attractions Boone and Boone County have to fill up your days. You can ride the train at the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad, reserve a relaxing dinner on their dinner train, tour Mamie Doud Eisenhower’s Birthplace, drive the historic Dragoon Trail, shop in our many retail stores, visit one of our many city or county parks and enjoy the beauty of the Iowa Arboretum. Perhaps you want to ski or snowboard in the winter or rent a canoe in the summer at Seven Oaks Recreation Area, or you may be coming for a visit at one of our welcoming motels or area camps. Stop and view the longest and highest steel double track railroad bridge in the world—the Kate Shelley Memorial High Bridge, fish in the Des Moines River or at Don Williams Park, listen to the Iowa Municipal Band Festiva, or hike or bike across the Des Moines River on the 1/2-mile long, 13-story high, High Trestle Trail Bridge. All of these attractions draw over a quarter of a million visitors to the Boone area each year.
