Coralville is a great place for people to raise a family or for couples just starting out. There are homes across all price ranges, plenty of retail, lots of restaurants, parks, bike trails, movie theaters, easy access on/off highways and close to the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) and art, culture and nightlife in downtown Iowa City. Coralville itself has reasonable taxes, is safe, and still growing. We've lived here after living in Atlanta, Boston, Greater NYC, Chicago suburbs, and Seattle. Have to say it's one of the best places we've ever lived for overall quality of life, affordability and safety.

The town is amazing. It's kind of laid back, unlike it's neighboring Iowa City. People are very friendly towards eachother. During the summertime we have farmers market and many other community led activities. Without a doubt one of my favorite places in the world.
Intelligent, friendly city with a short distance to Iowa City which provides a variety of activities. Coralville is a wonderful, supportive community to immerse yourself in with plenty of resources to raise a healthy family.
