While some people in America may not know where Iowa is or even confuse Iowa for another state (we grow corn, not potatoes) it is a pretty good place to raise a family.
Iowa comes in at number 8 in the country for best places to raise a family.
Iowa scored high in education and child care, affordability and health.
Massachusetts came in at number 1. See where all of the states rank here.
I am happy to be able to raise my family here. The cost of living is great. There are plenty of events going on year round and we can make a day trip to the big city if we need to.
