Field of Dreams - Dyersville, IA

Field of Dreams - Ghost Players

Ghost Players emerging from the cornfield - Dyersville, IA.

Here's a movie & field trip opportunity located a short distance from Wisconsin.

Step 1: Watch the inspirational Kevin Costner movie "Field of Dreams" with your children.

Step 2: Drive to Dyersville, IA which is located 25 miles west of Dubuque. The Field of Dreams is a 2-hour drive from Waunakee.

Bring your baseball and a bat to play a pick-up game of baseball. Run the bases. Sit on the bleachers and dream. The Field of Dreams is a magical place...the famous movie line asserts, "People will Come." People continue to come even 20 years later.

Open April - November. Free admission. Souvenirs available on site.

Note: I am saddened to report that the Ghost Players have retired. They no longer take the baseball field each summer to play baseball with the kids. The "Ghosts"will truly be missed.
