With a population of 28,000, Mason City is a great place to live. In 2014, Mason City was named a Certified Blue Zones Project Community. We that live here are hard at work adopting proven strategies and increasing the region’s well-being. Worksites, Schools, Restaurants, and Grocery Stores have all signed on to make Mason City a healthy community.
Mason City is a popular place for the North Iowa area to shop and dine. Our downtown is filled with local cuisine options and boutiques. Radiating outward from the town center, visitors will recognize the familiar logos of chain restaurants and big box stores.
