Northwest Iowa has been considered a tourist destination for many years, but what really sustains this beautiful destination is the great people that work, play, and live here every day. Businesses like Polaris, Pure Fishing, Brown Medical, GKN, Tyson, and the myriad of small businesses like DermUs, Little Swan Lake Winery, and Oak Hill Marina make up the heart of the four counties of Buena Vista, Clay, Dickinson, and Emmet that provide the setting for a thriving economy in the Corridor.
The unique appeal of being a tourist destination doesn’t start at the beginning of summer or end at the start of fall. The thousands of people that live here take advantage of everything this area has to offer all year long. Walking out of the office and onto the bike trail; slipping out of your suit and into a wetsuit; this all happens whether you’re a tourist or a resident.
Realizing, facilitating, and connecting opportunity with businesses, jobs, and people is the goal of the Iowa Lakes Corridor. With more opportunity for families and businesses, why just visit? Live here. The Good Life Iowa businesses featured here represent those ideals, and we’re looking for more.
