Our Communities:

Everywhere you turn in Eastern Iowa you'll find green space and nature. Though many think of Iowa as being miles of corn fields, the terrain of Eastern Iowa is anything but flat. Wooded bluffs, scenic overlooks and rolling hills around in our river valley area. Miles of Mississippi River offer opportunities for boating, sailing, water-skiing and fishing from river beaches of riverside parks. Bicycle, walking and jogging trails allow residents to enjoy natural beauty. You may see a bald eagle in flight, or watch a riverboat making its way along the river.
