    Clive, Pella, Decorah, Cedar Falls, all come to mind when talking small towns in Iowa.

    I always think it's funny how they pick out a specific suburb. How different is Clive from Urbandale, Waukee, Johnston, Grimes, etc?

    When traveling all over Iowa to my kids sporting events the towns I thought were nice included Storm Lake, Grinnell, Carroll, Waverly and Pella. I just noticed 80% of these towns have a small college.

    I'm guessing that's why...

    Urbandale = 39,463 population (too big)
    Waukee = lower per capita income
    Johnston = lower per capita income
    Grimes = lower per capita income
    Marshalltown = sucks balls
