Waterloo-Cedar Falls Community - A great place to live and work

Choosing the location of your residency is a decision that will affect you and your family for years to come. When making your decision, you need to make sure the community you choose not only meets your training needs, but also the various lifestyle needs of your family.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls area represents what is good about life and what is great about Iowa.

The Cedar Valley is large enough to offer you the education, culture and diversified economy of major metropolitan areas, but small enough where you can't help but notice the warmth, safety and friendliness of the community.

Whether it's for you, your spouse or your kids, Iowa excels in education. Your children will flourish in our quality public, private and parochial schools. The area's six colleges and universities provide opportunities to pursue a higher education.

Around every corner is a new cultural experience, from concerts and plays to fine dining and unique shopping.

Take in the symphony at the new Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center in Cedar Falls. Catch a rising star watching Division I college sports action at the University of Northern Iowa, or explore the Grout Museum Imaginarium for kids (and big kids too).

The great outdoors also provides plenty of adventure. You can visit the area's more than 100 parks. Cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts come from all over the country to experience our more than 80 miles of hard-surfaced recreation trails. And if golf's your game, you've come to the right place. Iowa Golf Magazine declared Waterloo "Iowa's Golf Mecca."
