I like living in a small cultured tourist town such as Le Claire. There are things to do and local shops to see. I live in an area that has MidAmerican Energy which I enjoy having. There is also a consumer choice in Internet services which is nice. The amount of local business diversity is amazing!

It's a great little town on the river. Nice and secluded from the busier metro Quad Cities, while also being within a 5 min drive from everything that the Quad Cities has to offer. Overall, it's a great place to live and grow a family.
I lived here for 7.5 years and it really felt homey and safe. The school district is amazing, the second best in the state of Iowa. The little shops and stores are perfect and the people are very accommodating.
