If you don’t know much about Iowa, here’s some interesting facts and useful information.



Geography of Iowa –Iowa is in the Midwestern part of the country. This part is sometimes referred to as the “American Heartland”. It is bordered by Minnesota in the north, Missouri in the south, Wisconsin and Illinois in the east and South Dakota and Nebraska in the west. Iowa is a State where its east and west borders are made up of two rivers. These are the Mississippi River and Missouri River. Because of its location between two rivers, this State boasts an abundance of wooded hills, prairies and river valleys. West Iowa has the most fertile soil in the world. So, if you move to a retirement village in Iowa, you can be sure to live amidst, scenic beauty and with lush greenery.



Climate of Iowa – This State has a humid continental climate. Of course, heat and cold are both at extremes. It is not uncommon for winters to be extremely harsh and snowfall is a given. Tornadoes are common to this state, especially during spring and summer, and have an average of 37 tornadoes per year. While you may face some difficulties with such natural hazards, this State is surely a top ranker for those who wish to get close to nature.



Iowa Economy – Iowa is a farming state due to its fertile soil. Its top five agricultural products are grain, hogs, soybeans, cattle, calves, and dairy products. Other major crops grown in Iowa include corn, oats, hay, rye and wheat. However, this is not the only way Iowa boosts its economy. This State, as of recent years, has experienced great industrial growth. Food processing and manufacturing of farm equipment are two of the main industries in Iowa. However, it also has a strong manufacturing sector with products such as washing machines, ballpoint pens and office furniture topping the list. Iowa was recognized in 2010 as the sixth best State in the nation by CNBC.
