Charles City

We invite you to experience the rich art, history and community spirit that Charles City has to offer!

Exciting annual events, intriguing specialty shops and recreational facilities make Charles City a great destination. From Old Masters at the Mooney Art Collection to the childhood home of a National Women’s Rights Leader to the vintage Hart-Parr tractors at the Floyd County Historical Museum, Charles City proudly celebrates its heritage. Take a walking tour of historic homes or public art; ride the rapids on Iowa’s first whitewater course; see a movie at the Art Deco Charles Theatre. Walk or bike along the Charley Western Recreational Trail; challenge your friends to a round of disc golf at Riverfront Park; or play tennis on the grass courts of the All Iowa Lawn Tennis Club.

Summer brings Party in the Park plus the annual July 4th festival and more! Whether you are planning to visit for a day or stay for a lifetime, we hope you take some time to enjoy these experiences and get to know some of our wonderful residents while you are here.

If you are looking for a great place to live, work, visit, or play, we invite you to discover Charles City!
