    Albia Reviews

    We do have a few events that go on that attract outsiders to our area. Rodders and Choppers brings in many people. It is a car and bike show that takes place on our historic square. Also, sports in our town bring lots of people through. We also recently just built a Veterans Memorial area, which will soon be buzzing with people I'm sure!
    Review Albia
    The outdoor areas surrounding Albia are wonderful. They are well maintained with several things to do. You can go boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, or even just have a picnic. They are safe and well monitored by local police departments. Overall, the area is relaxing, inviting, and friendly.
    Excellent small town that is close to major cities. Really like knowing a lot of people in the town. Offer a real sense of community and togetherness.
