MITCHELL, South Dakota–How does a couple married 60 years celebrate the monumental milestone? If you are Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and his wife, Barbara, apparently you travel to the famous Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota.

Grassley, Iowa’s most noted politician-tweeter, has been sending out short messages on Twitter of the couple’s journey to commemorate their anniversary. The messages reveal the Grassleys also traveled to the Corn Palace in 1954.

If the Grassleys stay long enough, they can take in music from Pat Benatar and Crystal Gayle.
