We are looking forward to an active and exciting 2014 on the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway! On Tuesday, January 28th, the Travel Federation of Iowa hosted a Legislative Showcase for our state representatives. All of Iowa's 11 byways were represented with byway managers from as far away as Postville, IA, attending the showcase.

Given the other 4 legislative events that night, there was a great turnout of legislators. A total of 83 of the 150 legislators were present at the showcase.   Please see below for more information on 2014 travel priorities and statistics. 2014 TFI Priorities: http://www.travelfederationofiowa.org/files/2014_TFI_Priorities.pdf 2014 TFI Fast Facts: http://www.travelfederationofiowa.org/files/2014_TFI_Fast_Facts.pdf  ...
