The 9 Coziest Towns In Iowa To Snuggle Up In This Season
Wintertime is approaching Iowa, and all is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Get into the holiday spirit with a visit to one of these Iowa Christmas towns this year for shopping, strolling, and dining.
Wyoming is Iowa's tiny Christmas town. The entire city gets into the holiday, decorating storefronts and Main Street with twinkling lights and holiday decor. Visit, and you'll feel like you're in a Hallmark Movie.
Anamosa is always wonderful to visit, but during the holiday season, the town puts on its best face. A Christmas Parade, a tree-lighting ceremony, and lights along Main Street are just some of the highlights.
3. Orange City
Orange City has the most unique holiday celebration in Iowa - Sinterklaas Day! The Dutch Santa visits on his white horse to bring Christmas Cheer to the entire town at Windmill Square.
4. Le Mars
Le Mars is home to the Christmas Pioneer Village in early December. This holiday celebration is held in the round barn and shows off local artisan's crafts. It's a great place to do your holiday shopping.
Oskaloosa is the brightest town in the state all December long! Thousands of Christmas Lights brighten up the town center every night, and the holiday parade is a sight to see.
Charming and quiet Fairfield goes all out with their old fashioned Christmas decor. If you visit during a snowy afternoon, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time.
7. Cedar Falls
Cedar Falls is a charming little town that's bursting with holiday cheer. Downtown goes all-out to celebrate the holiday season, and it's a great town for small business shopping.
8. Des Moines
Most of the year, Des Moines is a hustling and bustling city. In December, though, it all calms down. The quiet, snowy streets light up with holiday cheer, and everyone seems to get into the spirit of Christmas.
9. Villages of Van Buren
The Villages of Van Buren are perfect to visit any time of year, but during the holiday season, they're at their best. These charming tiny towns are full of history and beautiful scenery, and you'll wonder if you've accidentally wandered into a storybook when there's a fresh blanket of snow.
