10 Small Towns In Iowa Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Living in a big city, you can miss out on the best part of small town living – the fact that everyone knows your name. In a small town, you will be greeted by name as you check out at the grocery store, or as you’re out walking your dog, or making a deposit at the bank. It’s a comforting experience, and one of the best parts of living in a small town. If you’re from one of these tiny towns in Iowa, you probably know exactly how that feels.
