Field of Dreams Movie Site
Is this Heaven? No, it’s Iowa. A place of fertile soil, traditional values and simple pleasure. And in Dyersville, Iowa, at the century-old Lansing family farm with its quaint, and oh so recognizable house, baseball still ranks as a favorite pastime for all ages. What better place to carve a baseball diamond from a corn field and to make a movie about pursuing one’s dream, no matter how much effort it takes?
Field of Dreams, released in 1989, is a movie that has inspired millions and became an Academy Award nominee for “Best Picture of the Year.” Welcome to this home, this farm, this baseball field, this little piece of heaven on earth. Welcome to this place where reality mixes with fantasy and dreams can come true.
Field of Dreams was great! They just started doing house tours this year. Clarence did a great job showing the house and giving behind the scenes information only they know about from living there. Well worth the drive to spend some time there. Highly recommend it.
Had a wonderful time at the Field of Dreams! People are very friendly and we joined a group that were playing. People share gloves and bats, so don't worry if you don't have a large enough group or if you have all the equipment. Very fun place to visit!
If you loved the movie, you'll love the place! Exactly how I imagined it... Also, do the home tour! It's worth every penny. The tour guide is wonderful and gives you the "inside scoop" on things you wouldn't otherwise learn.
I loved the movie and visiting the Field Of Dreams did not let me down. July 4th weekend and there were a lot of people there. People set up chairs around the diamond, kids playing baseball, a real slice of Americana. The extra bonus was the ghost players who emerged from the cornfield to play a game with audience participation. Great fun! The ghost players perform 4 times a year.
A great time! We took our bat and gloves and made some great memories. Some very nice photos of the field, house and exiting the corn field. It is in the middle of no where, but if you're a fan of the movie then a little gravel won't hurt.
