    Travel

    Planning your trip

    If possible we suggest avoiding flying through Chicago which appears to be the most vulnerable to a variety of delays. Flights from Atlanta, Lexington/Kentucky, St Louis or Minneapolis tend to be less frequently delayed than those routed through Chicago. (source: Bureau of transportation statistics).

    Flying

    Eastern Iowa Airport, airport code, CID
    Iowa City is served by the Eastern Iowa Airport, located approximately 25 minutes driving time from Iowa City. Shuttle services are available to transfer between the airport and Iowa City with round trips at $65 each. Rental Cars and Taxis are also available.

    Note: Ground transportation is not provided by the University between Iowa City and the airport. It remains the obligation of each attendee to arrange their own transportation.

    Driving

    Iowa City is south of I-80 and accessible from exits 242 (First Ave), and 244 (Dubuque Street).

    Climate

    Summers are hot, sticky affairs with rapidly variable and possibly violent weather, heed local advice about tornado warnings and take shelter. When outside dress very comfortably, almost as though you were going to the beach. Indoors tend to be over air-conditioned, this is true of most businesses and particularly the Otolaryngology Conference Room.

    Events and Attractions

    You'll find a surprisingly vibrant assortment of attractions and events in the Iowa City/Coralville area.
