Gladbrook Reviews

Gladbrook is a very family friendly town in Iowa. The community comes together in hard times and remains close after. There are not many jobs do to it being a very small town. Many new family feel safe and love the feel of the town. The town has a movie heater and grocery store for those who need something quick. I think Gladbrook to be a beautiful small town that many people should come see and maybe even live.

My family and I have been in Gladbrook for a little over a year and I really enjoy it. It is a very small town in Iowa. We have friendly people and it's quiet for the most part. The only thing I could change about this town is that the Casey's gas station could use an upgrade.
Its a small town so there isn't a lot to do.
