Brief DescriptionTourism Office For Van Buren County Iowa
DescriptionThe rush of life races the blood, but the quiet life restoreth the soul . . the quiet life is what you will find when you visit the Villages of Van Buren County, in southeast Iowa. Off the beaten path, but near to history, nature and the spirit of America's heartland. Visitors say life in the Villages moves at a slightly different pace, that friendliness is a virtue among residents and that village heritage is sacred ground. The Villages are a unique cluster of towns in Van Buren County, Iowa which is located just 20 miles South of Fairfield (Hwy. 34), 45 miles East of Ottumwa (Hwy. 63) and 34 miles West of Hwy 27 (Avenue of the Saints.) It is simple to relax as you drive through the countryside because you will not find a stop light or a fast-food restaurant in the entire county! Take a step back in time to enjoy a leisurely picnic in a park, hike the trails, stroll through the shops, enjoy the historic architecture, or relax and take in the solitude and beauty of the surroundings.

Since we have been designated "Iowa Tourism County of the Year" in 1989, 1991, 1997, 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2010 . . it's easy to see why the Villages of Van Buren are one of Iowa's top tourism destinations. Van Buren County was designated as one of "Iowa's Great Places" in 2010. We are also proud to be included as one of only nine Iowa locations in the best-selling book "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" in the U.S. and Canada. (see us on pages 521-522)
