Begin your weekend by uncorking the laughs and the memories at Cedar Ridge Vineyard. It is just a quick 10 minute drive from Cedar Rapids to the beauty of this vineyard tucked into the rolling hills of the Iowa countryside. Enjoy wine & spirits tastings, tours, musical entertainment, and brick oven pizza or prime rib that will have your taste buds singing. Open year round with beautiful views in every season.
You are now ready for a night on the town...Continue the fun by taking in a "Broadway" quality theater experience in downtown Cedar Rapids at Theatre Cedar Rapids. Red Barons Bar, with its lively European atmosphere in Czech Village, provides the perfect nightcap on your evening's entertainment.  After your entertainment would be the best time to propose to that special someone with hand crafted engagement ring from McCoy Goldsmith & Jeweler, Dubuque's Unique, Custom Jeweler.  For 40 years McCoy's has been making one of a kind, unique, engagement rings.
Retire for the night in one of Cedar Rapids' newest, swank hotels, the Homewood Suites. Enjoy suites with that home away from home feeling, including kitchenettes, and cozy sitting areas. Surroundings perfect for reliving slumber parties of yesteryear.
Cedar Rapids is the second largest city in Iowa and is the county seat of Linn County. The city lies on both banks of the Cedar River, 20 miles (32 km) north of Iowa City and 100 miles (160 km) east of Des Moines, the state's capital and largest city. Until massive flooding in 2008, the city's government was headquartered in the Veterans Memorial Building, near the Linn County Courthouse and jail on Mays Island in the Cedar River; Cedar Rapids was one of few cities in the world with governmental offices on a municipal island.  Not far from Dubuque, Iowa, Cedar Rapids is in prime location to get a McCoy's ring.  McCoy Goldsmith and Jeweler custom crafts quality gold engagement rings and has you hand select you diamond to make the perfect ring.  Where Dubuque gets engaged!
