What are some truly magical Hallmark towns in Iowa?  

Iowa is a beautiful place to live all year, but in the winter, some small towns shine. Take for instance the adorable small town of Osceola, where everyone knows your name and the holidays are simply extra special. Another favorite Hallmark town in Iowa is Oskaloosa, which has a reputation for being the “twinkliest town in Iowa,” and for good reason – lights! Lights everywhere! We also love places like the towns of Wyoming, Dubuque, and LeClaire.  

What are the best Iowa Christmas towns?  

Every small town in Iowa is special during the holidays, but there really are some amazing Iowa Christmas towns (and cities) that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Did you know that Des Moines loves decking the halls (and streets) every year in the most magical of ways? It’s worth a visit. Then, there’s the adorable little Quad Cities town of LeClaire, whose entire downtown loves to go all-out. We also cannot get enough of the adorable college town of Mount Pleasant, where the warm hearts are many and the cold weather is plenty.  

What is Christmas in Iowa like?  

Christmas in Iowa is an amazing time unlike any other. When you’re not exploring all the delightful little Christmas villages in IA that we mentioned above, you can be doing fun, classic activities like ice skating, snowman-building, cocoa-sipping, and more! Check out some of the best Christmas lights displays in Iowa and, while you’re at it, enjoy a winter weather hiking trail in Iowa, too. Find the perfect Christmas tree and make a whole family event out of it. Head to the famous Amana’s General Store and indulge in holiday delights like an entire room dedicated completely to Christmas, and the sledding hills in Iowa are to die for.
