Don’t let Humboldt’s small population fool you; it’s been steadily growing over the last ten years, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down. The town’s wide streets, low crime rate, parks and beautiful neighborhoods, not to mention its diverse employment, educational, and entertainment opportunities, attract residents and job seekers alike.
A testament to Humboldt’s pride and sense of community is in its recent RVTV event that lovingly capitalized on the state’s Hawkeye versus Cyclone rivalry. This town-sponsored and volunteer-supported event featured all-in-fun tournaments, obstacle courses, carriage rides, and local eats. Black and gold mixed with yellow and red (and the occasional UNI purple), for a friendly competition where everyone went home a winner.
And building neighborhoods isn’t the only thing that comes naturally to Humboldt, Iowa. It’s natural landscape, a rolling prairie nestled between the two forks of the Des Moines River, is a boon to nature lovers. The town offers three walking trails and six river floating trails, giving running, biking, and rowing enthusiasts a chance to view the natural Iowa landscape under their own power.
