January Midwest Travel Twitter Chat featuring Clear Lake, IA

Clear Lake

Our very first Midwest Travel Twitter Chat was last January and featured Clear Lake, IA. Our partner and co-host of the Midwest Travel Chat, Travel with Sara, lives right outside of Clear Lake and was very familiar with the area. Tim and I however, had only been there passing thru on our way to Minneapolis. After that first Twitter chat talking about all the exciting things that Clear Lake has to offer, I knew that Tim and I had to get there. So, over Memorial Day weekend 2015, we headed up there and I fell in love with the area.


Clear Lake, IA has that resort feel combined with a small town atmosphere. Even though it’s top draw is the lake itself, Clear Lake has events all year round.

Travel With Sara and The Walking Tourists are excited to share the fun at our January Midwest Travel Chat using #MWTravel.  Our featured destination will be Clear Lake, IA. They are generously providing a few prizes to participants in the chat.
