Another small Iowa town that stands out on the map is Lime Springs. A small town with so much to offer, such as the Lidtke Mill, a national historic site. The mill is located on the Upper Iowa river and is surrounded by a beautiful 10 acre park with excellent camping. Here you can canoe, fish, and explore the state's largest prairie. Lime Springs is just a couple of miles off U.S. Highway 63.
Every year Lime Springs has their annual Sweet Corn Days in August. There is a parade, flea market, free sweet corn, food stands, and a street dance. This grew from a one day event to a two day event. There are volleyball tournaments, softball tournaments, antique tractor pull, and also added was the 4-wheel pull. And yes, don't forget the beer garden. There is also a boy scout breakfast, bingo, watermelon, classic car show, and usually some form of entertainment after the parade on Sunday and a $1000 Cash Drawing.
Lime Springs has parks, a swimming pool, banking services, a medical clinic, locker, and more. In April of 2002 the community of Lime Springs was named a Tree City USA. Being a Tree City USA helps present the kind of image that the citizens of Lime Springs want to have for their homes and businesses. There is a lot to do in the little towns of Howard County.
