Drive Trail CD

is available

The new Drive Trail CD tours are available at the Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce office.

The CDs are intended for locals and visitors to the community, who can plug them into their car stereos for a "guided tour" of the recreational, historical and nature attractions around Buena Vista County. Maps are also available.

The CDs sell for $7, and chamber officials expect them to be popular during the coming spring/summer tourism season.
