Wind Up in Traer


Located 25 miles south of Waterloo, this vibrant town gets its slogan, ‘Wind Up in Traer,’ from the iron spiral staircase that once led to the office of the local newspaper. With several family-owned shops and restaurants along Main Street, you’ll find much more than a staircase in downtown Traer. Catch a show for $3 at the theater, or take a walk through the Traer Historical Museum. Visit the Midwest’s largest shaker collection at the Salt and Pepper Shaker Gallery, which features more than 15,000 salt and pepper shakers.


The fun continues outdoors with a prairie nature preserve, a 9-hole golf course, and a newly built pool. From the Winding Stairs Festival in August to the Holiday Happenings in December, there’s fun to be had here year-round.


Traer isn’t just a great place to play—it’s a great place to raise a family, too. With a classroom average of 12 students per teacher, residents appreciate the quality education that prepares their children for the ever-changing future.
