Iola, Kansas is a small area with a close community but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in things to do.
Enjoy wandering downtown and stop at the lovely large square, where you'll find the Allen County Historical Society Museum. Drop in for a taste of the past of the area and learn about the historical influences that can still be felt here. Elsewhere, admire the Civil War Statue, check out the Old Allen County Jail, and devote some time to the Bowlus Fine Arts Center -- a place that attracts many internationally-acclaimed performers.
Spring is best in Iola, when the weather is pleasant and perfect for leisurely strolls.
