Tipton, the county seat of Cedar County, is ideally located in the heart of eastern Iowa. Only 8 miles north of Interstate 80 and 7 miles south of US Highway 30, Tipton also features two state highways that intersect in downtown. With close proximity to larger metro areas such as Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, and the Quad Cities, Tipton is ideally located for business transportation needs.
Bucking the “shrinking small town” trend, Tipton is steadily growing commercially, industrially, and residentially. It is an extremely pro-business community with a strong and loyal economic base with a thriving downtown business district.
The Tipton Business Park, independently certified as “Shovel Ready”, provides opportunity for larger manufacturing and other industrial uses on the south side of town.
