Love this small town! This is where I grew up and everyone is like family here. The school is super nice and all the kids get along for the most part. There is little crime here especially compared to the towns around it, and the people are always friendly. There is a lot of sporting events to go to and the whole town gets involved with the high school and the activities!
Review Ackley
There is no activities all year around for the youth. No workout centers, movie theaters, bowling, skating, etc. stay home. Or go to nearby towns
Family area. Most have been here their whole lives.
