The Cedar Rapids area excels in studies ranking quality of life and livability when considering cost of living, income, home ownership, and crime. Plus, our residents exemplify the idea of neighborliness. We’re big enough to offer engaging opportunities, yet small enough to encourage everyone to participate and get involved. Short commutes, averaging 15 to 20 minutes, add to the area’s quality of living.
