I've lived in Iowa my whole life. There is nothing here for tourists that isn't done better somewhere else. Plus, the western half of the state is hardcore nutjob Trump country.

It's actually not a bad state to live in (assuming you live in one of the large cities in the eastern half of the state), but if you want "stuff to do", you are on your own. Des Moines is a pretty cool town, though.

There are a couple of cool things in Western Iowa.
The train in Boone.
The Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend.
Danish Village in Elk Horn.
Hausbarn in Manning
Meth labs in every abandoned barn.

Where unexamined relentless pursuit of self-interest is good enough for us.

So, watch it.

So something like this then: "Iowa, you can do everything here!!! (Just not as good as other places)"

Come for the corn.
The corn and the enforced neo-christian value systems.

"I'd like to see Iowans design this. I don't think it ought to be a Madison Avenue design. "

Much as I understand the need for a rework, Iowans don't understand what motivates people in other states so I doubt you can avoid going with a professional agency if you want a nationwide campaign of success.

When I've stayed in Des Moines, they seemed to roll up the sidewalks and gerbil tubes at 5:01 every night unless I wanted to walk across downtown to the bar district.

Maybe? I'm just speaking from experience driving across the country.  Iowa was corn.  Ohio was corn and GM plant.  Minnesota? Wisconsin? was a crapload of billboards for gentleman's clubs.  South Dakota showed the value of flying over some states.
