Milo Reviews

Milo is a very nice, quiet, family friendly town about an hour away from Des Moines. I like the affordability and the small town life. It is a great place to raise a family. The parks are nice and the 4th of July celebration is one of the best around. It has friendly neighbors and one of the best wood oven pizza places around.

Living in small town, Milo, Iowa is "The Best" because we are located just south of town where all of your needs can be met with a short drive and all of your wants our close in Des Moines. We have the best luck with weather because everything always misses us. You will fall in love with the people more than the town! Everyone is involved and wants to help others make it through life!
Nothing terrible ever happens in Milo. Everyone keeps their back door unlocked and keys in the ignition! You have not only one set of parents, but the neighbors will help watch and keep you in line!
