Orange City is a small town of 6,000 in Northwest Iowa. Don't let that number fool you, though. Orange City has a public elementary and high school, a private elementary and high school, private college, hospital, two retirement homes, fifteen churches and many more. It is bustling with activity, and Dutch heritage. We have the Tulip Festival on the third weekend in May; which showcases Dutch costumes, floats, foods, and many more! The whole town gets involved with putting on the Tulip Festival, and thousands of people from all over the world come to watch our Dutch kids scrub streets, dance, and ride floats. Orange City has been my home all my life, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. The sense of community and love that emits from this town is unbelievable.

Oh, the stirrings of the soul when one lays eyes on the gently rolling landscape that surrounds the shimmering citadel of Orange City. 6000 strong, the Orange City citizens possess pride in their hearts for their humble abode in America's Heartland. Rated the #1 best place to settle in Sioux County, nothing could grace the city with a greater honor. The wind parts the corn, as the Orange City citizens heave sighs that are synchronized with this uniquely Iowan tempest. Hurrah for Orange City, the heavenly gift in the midst of the country!!
Orange City is a great town to live in if you're looking for a small town atmosphere. The people here are friendly, but unless you have young children, it can be hard to find a group of people. The people here are also very conservative.
