Eldridge is a growing city and is a good place to raise a family. I grew up in Eldridge and I appreciate the community. Because it is growing, new places to eat and new things to do are popping up, making it a more interesting town. Overall Eldridge is a pretty safe community. Because it isn't a very large or populated community, commute time isn't an issue, as you can get anywhere in town in 15 minutes or less. The schools are above average and the cost of living is less than most of the surrounding areas. The community could be more diverse and could have a more active nightlife though.
Review Eldridge
It is a very nice area. There are multiple parks around and the area always looks nice. The people I have met there are generally kind and considerate of others. I wish it would stop getting bigger because the town is invading the farming area.
We have a lot of fast food restaurants in this area, for example: McDonalds, hardees, and Subway. We have a ton of Pizza Places and only 3 bar and grills that are okay.
