Coming soon: Surprising I-29, the Ultimate Guide to fun along interstate 29

I've been working on my next book for a long time, and I'm so excited to announce that it's almost ready for you! 

Drumroll ready....

Surprising I-29

Great Little Places and Local Lore Along One of America's Underappreciated Highways 

by Lindsay Hindman 

I can't wait to share this brand-new travel guide with you and I hope you find it really interesting and useful as you travel along I-29 this summer and beyond. I'll have a lot more info for you soon, including an official release date, but here is a peek at the cover art: 

The book covers places to explore, eat, stay, and shop along I-29 from Kansas City, Missouri to Pembina, North Dakota. The attractions included are all within 29 miles of I-29 and are worth planning some extra time to visit next time you're driving along I -29. I researched extensively in museums, in newspaper archives, on social media, in phone calls and emails, and by eating some great food to make sure that the info inside the book is all as accurate as it can be. And now it's all coming together into the first ever travel guide covering the I-29 corridor. Some of the cities with their own chapter include: 

  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Kansas City, Kansas
  • St. Joseph, Missouri
  • Omaha, Nebraska and
  • Council Bluffs, Iowa
  • Sioux City, Iowa
  • Sioux Falls, South Dakota
  • Watertown, South Dakota 
  • Fargo, North Dakota
  • Grand Forks, North Dakota

There are also tons of other great attractions mentioned in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota like a state park with petroglyphs, a lavender farm, the birthplace of cookies & cream ice cream, and the farthest north distillery in the US. 

I'll share more soon, including some book launch fun, but for now, thanks for reading this far. I can't wait to share Surprising I-29 with you.
