Many spots on the Ohio river
All I got for natural, but southern Ohio and Lake Erie are both underrated for beauty.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
For Iowa I would say:
Iowa State Fair
Field of Dreams
Grotto of the Redemption
Effigy Mounds National Monument
And for the geeks, Riverside, Iowa http://www.trekfest.com

Yorktown is one of my favorite places. Battlefields are just a couple of minutes from the York River. It's a beautiful spot that also has a small beach that not too many people know about...yet. Decent pub or two down there, as well.
