Whether you’re sprinting toward the finish line of a dry spell or cutting out the booze long-term, Wild Culture Kombucha Taproom in Iowa City (210 N. Linn St.) has you covered. Fermented tea is packed with probiotics. And exciting flavors like Juniper Berry and Cinnamon Plum are a must-try if you’ve only had the traditional. Or, opt for zero-proof cocktails with a snack board. The taproom also carries a selection of Iowa craft beers for drinkers who are more into booze than ‘booch. Check their Facebook page for occasional events, too.
While you’re in town, squeeze in some exercise. Members of the public can purchase an affordable day pass to the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center (309 S. Madison St.), which offers access to the climbing wall, wave pool, and other state-of-the-art facilities. Purchase at the front desk.
