I am proud to have lived in Maquoketa all my life.I can think of lots of other towns in Iowa that I wouldn't spend a single night in.

Maquoketa: Most boring, #14 on crime, #7 in unemployment, and poorest in State of Iowa. This based on only the small cities. It is more economical for me to live there, that is why I moved to Maquoketa. I am helping their economy by buying locally my groceries, household goods, etc. and hiring locals to fix up my place and maintain my lawn. Maquoketa population is a little over 6k. However, it now has a fine arts center and one of the best fairs in the State.

They never mentioned how friendly the people are and I have gotten to know quite a few. They have a newer Walmart, Fareway, True Value, Kwik Star, and Comfort Inn. If the poorest people in the State, then how can they think they could support all these establishments- Maquoketa Caves is also one of the most popular parks in the State!
