Grinnell is light years more unique, cool, funky, eclectic and diverse than most rural towns in Iowa.
World renowned Grinnell College is here, which draws many smart students from both coasts.
Awesome variety of eats here; independent grocery store with an amazing deli, wines and organic choices plus ethnic, colorful restaurants with farm-table selections in addition to yummy comfort food. The people are nice here; so helpful, friendly, welcoming and inclusive of new people in town.
Not only does it have an urban edge “in the middle of Iowa” to it, but it’s a great place to raise a family, retire or just kick back to hang out with fun, genuine people.
