Hometowns~What Makes Your Hometown Unique?

 OK~ I'm hearing the words hometown quite a bit lately. My hometown happens to be Mason City, Iowa.  And I'm pleased to share THREE things that make this community a great place to visit and raise a family!

  • I may complain when I sit at a stop light and there are ten cars present. But, in reality, these ten cars are much better than the hundreds that may be present at an intersection in a large city.
  • Living in the country, we enjoy the peacefulness that we endure when we step outside. Mason City happens to have several parks that are family friendly 365 days of the year. From a dip into the local swimming pool to coasting down the sledding hill; our parks are full of activities for families.
  • The Historic Park Inn Hotel recently opened! This hotel is the last hotel in the whole world that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1910. This hotel has been restored after a complete renovation and is open for guests! 

Here is the view when you step through the main doors of the hotel! Our whole community prides itself on the renovation of this historical hotel, isn't it beautiful? If you are an architect buff, this hotel is for you! So, I'd have to say my local town is a little unique in the fact that it has the LAST hotel in the whole world designed by Frank Lloyd Wright~ pretty cool, huh? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I have to agree with you on the stoplights, and recently I have been stuck behind a lot of farm machinery. I allays try to be patient because I know those farmers are working as hard as they can to get harvest in and provide food for families and animals.


I always love feedback on my blog!
