Named The Most Beautiful Small Town In Iowa, Take A Closer Look At Spencer

Just a few years ago, Smithsonian Magazine surveyed thousands of towns, all with populations lower than 20,000, to find the best in the country. Their natural beauty, history, and local culture were all considered, and 20 towns made the cut. Each town was recognized as a destination worth visiting, no matter where you’re from, and you may be surprised to find out which Iowa community earned a spot on the list. The best small town in Iowa is one you’ve got to see for yourself!
