Some of the nicest people I have ever met are Iowans.


However, I would say far too many are pretentious, cliquish, big city wannabes. Their arrogance is best ignored.

My observation is based on living in eastern IA.

If you want to know what Iowa is like, just listen to that song from the Music Man...goes something like "Oh you've got to give Iowa a try!"

I don't know; I heard there was some trouble, right there in River City.

Her professor also told her that Iowans are not Bible-wielding folk that preach to you at the supermarket or at your child's soccer game. My co-worker was irreligious and did not want to relocate to a place where everyday folk (neighbors, co-workers, townsfolk, etc.) would discuss with you their religious beliefs and/or confront for having no particular religion. Basically, she did not to move to a place where people were constantly in your face with talk of God or religion. This hindered my former co-worker from relocating to the South and a large swath of the Midwest. Apparently, her college professor had lived in many different states and she believed that out of all of the places she had lived, she thought that Iowa may suit my co-worker, her student, the best. What is an Iowan's take on this matter? All y'all Iowans need to shed some light on this matter for me since I've never been to Iowa and have only ever known one Iowan. What are Iowans like, for the most part?
People in Iowa are Humans just like everywhere else, some are just nicer than others.
