Growing Up in Charles City Iowa -- America's Hometown


I grew up in Charles City, Iowa. Nestled in northeast Iowa, it's the closest thing to 'Mayberry' I've ever seen. As kids we could ride our bikes all over the neighborhood and be kids without the worry of problems.
Even though my family now lives in North Texas, we get up to Charles City at least once a year and sometimes more often.

Hello! I grew up in Charles City too and you're right, closest thing to Mayberry. I miss it as well, haven't been back for a few years now.
