Travel to Iowa City, Iowa: Iowa City is in eastern Iowa, just off Interstate 80, and close to the intersection with 218/I380. The closest airport is Cedar Rapids, Iowa ( http://www.eiairport.org ). There is shuttle service available from the Cedar Rapids Airport to Iowa City (http://www.eiairport.org/parking/shuttle.shtml ). Moline, Illinois is the next closest airport ( http://qcairport.com). There is no shuttle from Moline to Iowa City, and the bus is inconvenient; car rental is your best option from Moline. Car rental is also the best option from the Des Moines airport ( http://www.dsmairport.com ). It is also possible to catch a Megabus twice a day from downtown Des Moines to Iowa City. Similarly, there is a Megabus twice a day from Chicago to Iowa City. If you take a Megabus from either Des Moines or Chicago, early reservations are advised ( http://us.megabus.com ). Greyhound and Trailways buses are also available from downtown Chicago and Des Moines. By car, the drive from the Chicago airports is just under four hours. Trains stop at Galesburg, IL and Mt Pleasant IA, which, alas, put you farther away from Iowa City than the regional airports.
