Small Iowa Town Named 4th Most Livable City in America
Realtor.com recently compiled a list of the top 10 small towns in the entire U.S. and one, well-known Iowa town cracked the top 5.
If you've ever been to this town, you won't be surprised seeing it on this list, as it has a little bit of everything.
Which Iowa Town Made The List?
Welcome to the quiet, northwest Iowa community of Spencer, population 11,000.
What Makes Spencer, Iowa Such A Great Place To Live?
Well, for one thing, it's where it's located. Not only is Spencer just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Iowa Great Lakes, but it's also close enough to the urban centers of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Sioux City, Iowa where you can get your shopping done.
Here's What Realtor.com had to say about Spencer, Iowa:
Lovely buildings aside, it’s also a great place to wander museums, watch live theater, camp, hunt, fish, bike, and visit the “World’s Greatest County Fair,” which takes over the town once a year.
Buyers who want a piece of the town’s historic homes can get into lovely places with antique details, including this three-bedroom near downtown listed at $149,900 or this two-bedroom bungalow on the market for $87,900.
As you can see, Spencer has a lot to offer. From its affordable housing to its top-notch schools, and hospitals, the only real shocker is that it didn't make the number one spot on this list.
Speaking of that, which town did make the number one spot?
Well, it's actually not too awfully far away from Spencer. The best small town, according to Realtor is New Ulm, Minnesota.
