Review Cedar Rapids
I have grown up in this community, I have met all of my wonderful friends and found many chances to launch my career interests. More specifically, Linn-Mar School District is a fantastic school district to grow up in; it holds many opportunities for involvement with a smaller town community feel. Organizations such as Workplace Learning allow students to look for a career path and get experience by working with local companies. Due to the city's real community feel these programs bring people together and allow for a diverse and ever-changing landscape. Cedar Rapids has been a great place to grow up, and I will never forget everything I have gained from my experiences here.
Cedar Rapids is a great place to live. It has bike trails throughout the city, hiking, water recreation at the Coralville Dam and plenty of parks. The restaurant scene has been expanding in the downtown and Newbo area. There are two private colleges, Coe College and Mount Mercy and also Kirkwood Community College. We have a thriving community theater as well as the historic Paramount theater. Iowa City is a short 23 mile commute where the University of Iowa is located and all it's cultural offerings and sports venues. Cedar Rapids is centrally located between 4 major metropolitan area, Chicago, Saint Louis, Minneapolis and Kansas City which can all be reached by interstate or short flights.
Cedar Rapids offers a unique charm in its ability to provide all of life's necessities amidst quiet and nature. Surrounding it are great rolling hills and rocky bluffs that provide camping and kayaking opportunities. Within, the tight community works to create its own tradition with monthly festivals, wide support for the arts, and an uncanny dedication to hospitality. Here, one can work and relax without having to drive too far. Rest is here.
