Ottumwa is a small city in southeastern Iowa, spanning the banks of the Des Moines River. A coal boom in the late 19th century led to the construction of numerous beautiful buildings and bridges in town, many of which still stand and help give the city a timeless appearance. Downtown, historic favorites like Canteen Lunch in the Alley intermingle with hip and modern hangouts like Appanoose Rapids to give locals a wide selection of dining options amid the vintage storefronts. The huge Greater Ottumwa Park at the center of town offers 340 acres of greenspace with everything from sports facilities to campgrounds, creating a beautiful outdoor enclave that’s just minutes from anywhere in town.
