Iowa (pronounced eye'-oh-way) beckons travelers from nearby Interstate 10 to stop off and relax awhile. Located just off I-10 and only fifteen minutes from Lake Charles, Iowa, Louisiana is one of the smaller municipalities that make up Calcasieu Parish and also one of the busiest.
Iowa is a town on the grow with some of the highest rated public schools in the parish, a professional police department and volunteer fire department. It has all the conveniences of a big city with the cozy flavor of a small town. While visiting Iowa, Louisiana, take the opportunity to sample some of their famous Acadian Creole cuisine.
