Overview

The Native Americans who originally inhabited the area that is now Iowa called it "The Beautiful Land." It's a name that still fits with its rolling prairies, rich farmland and gorgeous vistas you may recognize from movies like Field of Dreams and The Bridges of Madison County. If you're looking for apartment rentals surrounded by quiet beauty and simplier lifestyle, the Buckeye State may be your ideal new home.

What to Expect

Iowa is one of the foremost farming states in the US, providing a tenth of the nation's food supply. Corn, soybeans and other crops are grown in the rich soil of its 93,000 farms. Although agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, Iowa has also encouraged the manufacturing and service industries, and it is in these sectors that growth is most apparent. Major industries include food products, non-electrical machinery, electrical equipment, printing and publishing, and fabricated products.

Iowa is consistently rated high on lists of the best places to live in the United States. One reason is its consistently low cost of living, among the 16 lowest states in the nation. High housing standards, larger homes and lower costs and easy access to shopping and recreation mean that residents get more for their money. The state also has the lowest auto insurance premiums in the country, and costs for medical care are among the nation's lowest.

Where to Explore

Iowa has been honored with the designation of the second most liveable state and the fourth safest state in the nation. It also has the sixth shortest commute time, leaving residents more time to spend with family and on hobbies. In addition, six metro areas have been recognized as five-star communities: Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs/Omana, Davenport, Des Moines, Iowa City and Waterloo. These are all excellent cities to begin your search for apartments for rent.
