North Iowa has the unique asset of having 2 great cities very close, with strong, smaller towns in every direction. Mason City is a strong retail town with any restaurant and shopping store you could want, with a top-tier resort community of Clear Lake just a short 10 miles away.
Clear Lake has great fishing, boating, and is one of the best in-land lakes in the country for sailing. It has modern bike trails, campgrounds, and a bustling downtown with shops and constant events.
Mason City is a larger town of 30,000 with a great amount of city and county parks and a historic downtown area that is quickly redeveloping with businesses, restaurants, and loft-style housing. Mason City was certified a Blue Zones Community by Wellmark due to its focus on health-promoting programs.
The entire North Iowa area has the Quality of Life not often found with such affordable costs of living. The airport has direct flights to Chicago and Minneapolis and it's located less than 2 hours from Minneapolis to the north and less than 2 hours to Des Moines to the south by car. You can truly live in either town and enjoy them both.
