Manly Reviews

3 reviews
Manly is a decent small midwest town with plenty of appeal. Some areas are clearly lower-income and some are higher-income. Although the neighborhoods are split between one side of the railroad tracks and the other, the people are generally friendly and capable, and most major services exist within 20 miles.

Small town living, but sad that the downtown has passed away. Quiet but friendly neighbors. Was hometown to Rock Island Rail Road Round House. The town not only commemorates with "Rail Road, Ag Days" yearly, but has also memorialized train engine/caboose and brass statue of engineer with lantern.
Manly is in Worth county. The schools are great. You get scholarships due to the casino taxes. The teachers know your kids in an individual level and keep you involved.
