At Sundown, you'll come for the views and stay for the views. These scenic hills in Iowa offer glimpses of three different states as well as the Mississippi River valley. The terrain here is cut out of a 45-acre cedar forest, and features large vertical drops, plus halfpipes, rails, and jumps for the boarders. When you're looking for a break from the cold and snow, head over to peep the real-life Field of Dreams — the movie was filmed a few miles away.
