One of the things Iowans love most about the state is the Iowa State Fair. (Photo courtesy of Iowa State Fair)

Yes, we enjoy the change in seasons and the beauty that these changes bring. Yes, this past WinterRead More was very cold with many windchills below zero, but Spring is now here and the grass is turning green, flowers and trees are starting starting to bloom. I for one think Iowa is truly an outstanding place to live. People are friendly and many have a good work ethic also.

Yes I agree...We have beautiful autumns and a perfect blend of every season. The cost of living isntRead More bad, and at least where I live ( Norwalk ) the crime rate is so low its hardly worth mentioning...I have friends on FaceBook that brag up the state they live in but you will never get me to live anywhere else but Iowa...My home state.....:-)

As one who has lived in several other states, I would say that Iowa is a great place to live.Read More However, several of the other places I have lived I would also rate as great places. Of all the places I lived, would I rate Iowa as the best ? No. It would probably be # 2. The general lack of crime here is definitely a great thing, but the schools and the tax situation are two things that I see needing attention. We always pride ourselves on the great schools here, and I agree ... they are good. But, not great. And we need to get the politicians to whittle down on the tax burden in this state. Property taxes are the highest I have experienced anywhere and income taxes are a little on the high side. Climate is not the best here, but we have so many snowbirds here that any survey would likely get pretty high ratings, since they are not even here for 3 - 5 months of winter. The other thing that we need to keep an eye on is the pollution of our water systems. To see Big Creek and other places around Iowa being closed for part of the summer due to bacteria ....... something is wrong.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Hey I'm offended by your headline

By what part? The 'not work too much' part? How is that EVER a bad thing?! :D

Yes. But I also saw that Iowa City is on this list. So I wonder if it has something to do with theRead More fact that it's a college town.
