How can you not love everything about the place everyone thinks of when you say youre from Iowa. After driving 20 miles off the freeway and three miles off the main road in town, you come to the Mecah of 80s baseball movies! This iconic, non-discript field in the middle of a corn field is truly a spectacle to behold. The corn fields, surrounding hills, the famous bleachers, a nicely maintained field and lovely farm house all make for some incredible pictures. The store near the entrance to the farm sells any and everything Field of Dreams related, including coffee mugs, fake baseball cards and shirts with all sorts of screen printed wonderment on them! Upon driving in, the place was less glitzy than we were expecting, but when you step back, you realized its exactly what it advertises itself as - a baseball diamond in a corn field. Its the sort of place you dream about for years, visit for 30 minutes, and then talk about for years to come. Worth the trip on a nice day and a must see for anyone whos a baseball or Iowa fan!
The lady in the gift shop gave new meaning to rude customer service she was rude and short with every single customer. She threw gift items that were being purchased at the customer and spoke one word such has when I purchased an ice cream cone and went up to pay 1.50$ in a very aggressive manner. I talked with several customers and all were shocked at her behavior and rudeness. Being born and raised in Iowa I was deeply upset that this mayb how Iowans viewed since people all over the world come to the site. I dont want Iowa to b remembered for a city that could compete in rudeness with every city out there. Everyones opinion that day was that she had to b member of family cuz otherwise she wont still b working there
A beautiful and peaceful setting! There were 2 bats laying by the backstop and we had brought our mitts and a ball to play catch so with no one else there( we were there when it was closed) we had a little game with the kids and they loved it. There is an informative sign with pictures and comments from the owners which was interesting. There is no charge to see this movie set but during open hours there is a stand. Im not sure if they sell snacks or souvenirs or both since they were not open during our visit. Now include watching the movie at home together and youll have the recipe for an economical and quality family time that everyone should enjoy.
Solely for the nostalgia, seeing the field and house was worth 5 stars. Bring a glove and bat for the real experience. There is not really the freedom to play catch or hit balls if others are at field because everyone kind of has to cross paths which can get dangerous with flying baseballs. Staff just kind of hung out in the gift shop located in middle of parking lot. Definitely a great place to visit tho. I went with my wife and 2 kids and we enjoyed it.
If you build it... eventually we will come and visit it !!! My Hubby and I are well on our way to getting all 50 states in this glorious US of A under our belt and what trip to Iowa would be complete without the Field Of Dreams. We were there Memorial Day weekend (2017) -- so no corn, however the guide said the best viewing of the field is late July thru August, and they even play a game on the field and all the players come out thru the corn.
I loved the movie and visiting the Field Of Dreams did not let me down. July 4th weekend and there were a lot of people there. People set up chairs around the diamond, kids playing baseball, a real slice of Americana. The extra bonus was the ghost players who emerged from the cornfield to play a game with audience participation. Great fun! The ghost players perform 4 times a year.
My review is somewhat biasd, since I am a big fan of the movie. The field takes you back to the scenes from the movie and you find yourself waiting for Shoeless Joes and the rest of the Black So to walk out from the cornfield. Aside from the sovenier shop and an informational board, everything is where it should. It isnt heaven, its Iowa.
It is the famous movie site of the movie "Field of Dreams". They offer a variety of replicas of baseball bats, t-shirts, and you can even throw a few pitches from the pitchers mound! A great place to get some local history in a small Iowa town with more local history to be discovered with the family!
It was just as good as I imagined it. Clean, very welcoming area. We played some catch, ran the bases and just roamed the property. At the end we stopped at the gift shop and the person working was extremely friendly. Great conversation about the history of the movie site. Cant wait to go again.
A great stop to make while in Iowa. From the scenic, unadvertised drive to the Field to the historic farmhouse tour. Take a walk on the ballfield, walk thru the cornstalks as they did in the movie. Take the house tour, Craig, our tour guide was entertaing and informative. A must see!
A must go for every fan of baseball and of the movie. Did take pictures of myself in various poses, not explicit mind you, on and around the field and bleachers. Keep in mind that the house is being lived in/occupied by the current residents, so no one is allowed to enter and look around.
Field of Dreams was great! They just started doing house tours this year. Clarence did a great job showing the house and giving behind the scenes information only they know about from living there. Well worth the drive to spend some time there. Highly recommend it.
We stumbled upon the sign that lead us to the location and am so happy we did. It was lovely! They even had a team that was playing and they let my kids join in. They stopped the game to let them run bases. The gal in the stand was so friendly and informational!
Fabulously pretty baseball field. The whole layout is reminiscent of the movie. Would have been great if the corn wasnt just planted. Lots of families making the trip and having a hit or some catch on the field, so feel free to bring a bat, ball and gloves.
Stopped by with the family on a road trip. Definitely worth the stop if you liked the movie or are baseball fans. My 10 & 12 yr old boys are now curious to watch the movie and we were able to live out "Hey dad, wanna have a catch?" Memories for a lifetime!
Had a wonderful time at the Field of Dreams! People are very friendly and we joined a group that were playing. People share gloves and bats, so dont worry if you dont have a large enough group or if you have all the equipment. Very fun place to visit!
One of the highlights of our cross country trip. Showed up just 10 mins from close. The lady at the souvenir stand let us walk around on the field well after close. If you are a fan of the movie, this is a must see stop! Just AWESOME!
