This week I found out the American Gothic House is featured in Lonely Planet’s “Best in Travel 2012” book! After learning of this, I quickly obtained an iBook copy as I was too impatient to wait for the bookstore to open the next day. I found that we had made the list of “Top 10 Places to Put Yourself in the Picture”. The section reads. “Are they really pretty as a picture? Walk into the world’s most famous works of art”. Top destinations were in Denmark, France, Spain, French Polyneisa…and Iowa! I was ecstatic to say the least!
