Outdoor life brings all-over fitness

5 Jun 2017

Scientists repeatedly have proven that physical activity in the outdoors provides a host of benefits, from better sleep to stronger social ties, from reduced stress to higher self-esteem.

That might explain the balanced quality of life in the Lakes Corridor area of Iowa. Choices for outdoor recreation are everywhere. Swimming, boating and fishing take pride of place in this region with so many lakes. In addition, Buena Vista County has hiking and biking. The Spencer Recreation Trail in Clay County is perfect for jogging and walking.

People in Dickinson County can improve their game on six golf courses. Cross-country skiing keeps people active in winter. In Emmet County, hunting and fishing is big on the Emmet County Water Trail.
