Soak in the fresh Midwestern air at the Brown Deer Golf Club. The 18-hole public golf course winds through trees, water elements and a residential area to challenge even the best putters. After a round of golf, stop by the Antique Car Museum of Iowa. You do not have to be a gearhead to appreciate the 1899 Haynes-Apperson or 1927 Studebaker on display.
Next, take a short drive to the Coralville Lake and Devonian Fossil Gorge, located on the edge of town, to learn how the community earned its name. Search for fossils of oceanic life forms that inhabited Iowa during the Devonian period 375 million years ago. If you are traveling with the kids, the Iowa Children's Museum is a must-see. The hands-on exhibits and colorful play areas span two floors to keep the little ones entertained for hours. Do not miss the mock pizzeria where your child can become a true Italian pizza artist!
History buffs should spend an afternoon at the Johnson County Historical Society Museum. Artifacts from Iowa-based Native American tribes and the Mormons who settled the area are part of the 10,000 items on display. Finally, no trip to Coralville is complete without visiting neighboring Iowa City. Grab some burgers and a tailgating grill before heading to Kinnick Stadium to take in a University of Iowa Hawkeye's football game.
