State of Iowa - Iowa Economic Development Authority

IN IOWA, YOU CHOOSE - Live in a downtown loft. Live in a quiet neighborhood. Live on an acreage in the country. Whatever you choose, you can send your kids to quality public schools. Work late at the office and still make it back in time for the kids’ soccer games. Commute in less than 20 minutes. Have a night out with dinner and a show in the city, or a day biking, boating, fishing, hiking or hunting in the country. Either way, you won’t have to deal with gridlock. Buying a house (or a vacation house) is an attainable goal. It’s no wonder every year CNBC says Iowans have a top 10 quality of life. Iowa makes it all within reach.
