For the last seven years our family has went on an Iowa Ice Cream Road Trip every June in recognition of National Dairy Month. To start off this year's road trip we stayed fairly close to home and checked out the Bristow Ice Cream Shack, serving up soft serve ice cream treats during the summer at Memorial Park next to the town's Splash Pad.

Our family loves a good road trip and one of our family's traditions is to visit the different county Iowa Freedom Rocks across the state. By the end of 2020, all 99 counties will have unique painted murals, showcasing local heroes and stories honoring area veterans painted by Iowa artist Ray "Bubba" Sorensen II. Here is a look at all of the county Freedom Rocks located in North Central Iowa.
