About Allamakee County

Quality of Life has inched into the top spot in the U.S. that businesses now give for relocating. That’s a big advantage for Decorah and Winneshiek County because the area offers a way of life that many people can only dream of. Midwest Living magazine says that Decorah is one of the top 100 small towns to visit in the Midwest. But for the people who live here, it’s definitely No. 1.
