For the past month and a half I had the opportunity to travel all over Iowa for various work duties. This time of year is both my favorite and most stressful and while I am happy things are slowing down now, I wanted to share some pictures of my stops in primarily very rural communities! There is something really special about slowing down and walking around the main street of a community. Every town is different and you can really feel the vibrancy and energy (or lack thereof) just by seeing the love put into the little things. Planters, welcome signs, and public art are some of my favorites but sometimes the individuality of a place is even more unique than that!
The pictures are linked to their websites if you’re interested in more information!
Now you tell me:
- Where is your favorite place to slow down?
- Do you prefer rural communities or big cities to vacation? To live?
