Why Johnson County?
Johnson County is the second-fastest-growing county in Iowa, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released in 2016. Johnson County’s population grew by 10.2 percent, or 13,369 residents, bringing the estimated county population to 144,251.
The Johnson County/Iowa City area is popular on lists of places to live. Annual cultural events and a strong literary history have helped shape Iowa City, home to the University of Iowa. The college community offers a hardy arts and entertainment environment along with excellent health care for residents, highlighted by the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, Mercy Hospital, and Veterans Administration Hospital. Other examples, Iowa City was ranked the No. 3 best place to live in America by Outside Magazine, Forbes listed Iowa City 13th in the Best Cities for Business and Careers category and Yahoo finance ranked Iowa City as the #1 City to Start Over in.
You may notice many things in Iowa City are black and gold, including the clothing of many people you pass. Johnson County is home to the University of Iowa. The Hawkeyes are members of the Big Ten Conference and compete in Division 1 of the NCAA.
A popular misconception about Iowa is that it’s nothing but mile after mile of cornfields. There’s nothing wrong with cornfields, but that stereotype just isn’t true. Johnson County is made up of, and surrounded by, rolling hills, prairie grasses, rivers, lakes and woodlands, and over 50 public parks and trails.
