This is also a common person in Iowa. These people enjoy anything outdoors: fishing, hunting, hiking, bird watching, kayaking and more.
9. The regulars
These are your retired couples. You can always find them at their regular spot, drinking their morning coffee at Hy-Vee or having their usual dinner at the diner. These people are also common in Iowa, as the state was recently ranked the second best place to retire.
