Where is Iowa's Coolest Small Town?
Welcome to the town of Winterset, population 5,353. It's the birthplace of John Wayne and the setting of the book and movie, The Bridges of Madison County.
Just what makes Winterset so great? Here's why Far and Wide chose it as Iowa's best small town:
Anyone who has seen the romantic film "The Bridges of Madison County" has already gotten a glimpse at the Iowa town of Winterset; one of the famous covered bridges spotlighted in the film is located here.
In addition to holding an important place in bridge-culture history, Winterset is also the birthplace of one John Wayne. Visitors can explore a museum dedicated to the decorated actor, who was born Marion Mitchell Morrison and nicknamed "Duke" since childhood.
