Welcome to Atlantic, Iowa! We hope that you feel at home here — whether you call Atlantic home permanently, or if you’re just visiting for a day.
The Atlantic community is home to 7,500 folks, and we have big plans for where we’re heading. In Atlantic, you’ll find signs of a thriving community, continually seeking to better serve its residents and visitors. We boast a modern high school, a state-of-the-art YMCA, a healthy economy, a strong downtown and caring residents. You’ll find everything you need here – our diversity of businesses makes us a regional hub for shopping, health care, history, outdoor adventure and other services.
Take some time to walk along our main street, Chestnut Street, which is a bustling center for businesses, and it’s a beautiful centerpiece to our community. Daylilies, spirias, and petunias cover each corner with vibrant color during the summer. In the winter, Chestnut Street is aglow with thousands of white lights strung in the trees and along the rooftops. Throughout Atlantic, you’ll find that feeling of a traditional Iowa hometown.
