    Avoca Reviews

    1 review
    Avoca, Iowa is my choice for residency because of the simplicity of life I have. Everything is so close. Good friends, people, local businesses, activities for all ages and the community is very hands on. They have things for families to participate in year round that keeps everyone involved. It is a very close-knit community/family.
