  1. You'll Be Bored Out of Your Mind - Only if you're boring, Iowans will tell you. There's plenty to do here, so much that you could fill your social calendar with outings to concerts, hockey and baseball games, theater, museums, architecture tours or walks in the park. When you run out of ideas, you can head to Winnebago County, the home of – yes, Winnebagos – and buy yourself a camper to take your show on the road.
  2. The Winters Will Kill You - Seasonal snowfall averages 32 inches across Iowa, and the snow season extends from late October to mid-April, the National Climatic Data Center reports. What's six months of cold? You've endured more in your life. Let your family buy you gloves and scarves for the holidays. Stock up on thick socks. Also, set aside some of your savings to pay the neighbor kid to do some shoveling. Then, think warm thoughts until spring.

  4. Iowa is Nothing But Flatlands - Iowa is not as flat as you might think. It's not even on the top 10 list of flattest states, according to a study published in the Geographic Review. Iowa, researchers determined, is the 18th flattest state. Florida actually ranks first.
  5. All You'll See in Your Golden Years is Cornfields - "Is this heaven?" the line from the 1989 movie "Field of Dreams" goes. "No, it's Iowa," the other character answers. The fertile soil of Iowa's cornfields inspired the movie's field of dreams – a baseball diamond. Dyersville, home of the picturesque farm where the baseball field was built, still attracts tourists who buy into the dream that legends are born out of cornfields. In your retirement, you can come here, too, and ponder what your golden years are all about.
