Boone County

Imagine tidy streets and houses, quaint main streets full of hidden-gem restaurants and bars, no traffic and the most affordable housing around. Sure, the city might be good for a visit every now and then, but it’s certainly not for everyone. If an open sky and endless opportunity are what keep you feeling free, check out Iowa’s small towns and you might be pleasantly surprised with what you find.

 There’s no doubt that Iowa’s smaller communities are pretty laid back, and that’s not a bad thing. But if you know what you want, they also have a lot going on. They’re some of the safest in the nation, and some of the best places to raise a child. They’re clean, vibrant, historic, affordable and marked by Iowa’s best off-the-beaten path food and entertainment, arts scenes and tight-knit communities (including a few of our favorite college towns).

 You’ll find plenty of job opportunities at local small businesses, or you can check out the many major employers – including well-known manufacturers, ag companies or healthcare providers – secretly hiding out in these beautiful communities.
