Big city amenities with no big city headaches
See all the Cedar Rapids Metro has to offer and learn why so many people love it here!
Ready for a change of pace? Consider a change in place. Here you can ditch the roommate and own your home (with a yard), forget about that long commute and send your kids to award-winning public schools. Want a better quality of life? We INVENTED the idea.
Here we boast about our five seasons: fall, winter, spring, summer and the fifth season—time to enjoy the other four seasons and time to enjoy life, your family and truly find that balance between work and fun. That’s because we don’t spend a lot of time stuck in traffic or waiting to get into a store or event. It’s easier here (and friendlier, too!)
From award-winning dining, wineries and distilleries, bike trails to dog parks, concert and event venues both large and small—we have the same offerings as most larger cities, yet with small town vibes, a much lower cost-of-living and easier access to just about everything!
