The Loess Hills Missouri River Region has many opportunities for engagement with the arts! If you’re looking for a truly authentic arts experience, look no further than Harrison, Mills and Pottawattamie Counties! Council Bluffs has plenty of arts experiences, but don’t overlook the outlying rural towns. Given the right mindset and a little inspiration, small rural communities can become destinations for artists and their enthusiasts. This day trip itinerary will take you through some of the highlights for the arts in our region. Start where you’d like, all in one day or break it up into smaller trips! We have suggested a minimum time to allow for each stop, but you may want to budget for more if you’re planning on eating (which we highly recommend!) or doing other activities. Some of the locations have limited hours or are by appointment only, so it’s always a good idea to call ahead!
