recently took a trip to the western part of Iowa from our current home in Centerville really seem to like the town of Atlantic wondering if anyone who lives there or has live there might have some inside information on it seems like the quaint little town

we especially like the tree-lined Main Street versus the more conventional Town Square like we have in Centerville

Never actually lived in Atlantic, but I do know that the Coca Cola bottling center is (at least historically) one of the largest employers in town. Location is surprisingly decent, as it's roughly an hour away from both Des Moines and Omaha, and Lake Anita State Park, which is roughly 10 minutes away, is a quaint little place for boating and fishing. It's not particularly exciting as it doesn't have any truly major attractions close by, but it's not a bad place if you're looking for a place to get away from the action but simultaneously be not too terribly far removed from it.

This guide might be helpful too:
