Small communities in Siouxland, Cherokee

18 Sep

I like driving to the small communities in Siouxland. Each has its own charm and it;s nice to just hang out there, walking about and getting a chance to learn more about it. When I visited Cherokee, Iowa, a few months back to attend its annual rodeo, I also took some time to walk around its downtown and to explore it a bit more. And I found it a nice visit. Like all small towns in Iowa, its downtown is filled with early constructed buildings that is an anchor and lends charm to the community. But like a lot of small towns, it too struggles to keep itself vibrant and growing. The slower pace of life and possibly fewer offerings are not liked by all, but unless one wants to live in a megalopolis, smaller communities can offer their own way of life that many find attractive.
