North Liberty Reviews

North Liberty is booming! There are a lot of young families here and new housing, but also older folks and homes still remain. Coralville, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City are all a short drive away. The community is very active and there is always something to do or somewhere to eat. The only thing missing is a leashless dog park. Otherwise, it is a fun and safe place to live.

North Liberty is an affordable and beautiful place to live in. There are parks and hiking trails that will keep you motivated and healthy. There are restaurants all over the place with great food and variability. The cost of living is as cheap as it gets and for what you get, it is way worth your money. The amount of care they have for the children and their needs are extreme. I came here for college with my fiance', but ended up falling in love with this area. North Liberty is definitely a place to consider when starting adulthood.
North Liberty is a great place to live. Real Estate is relatively cheap and there are plenty of living options for many different income levels. There are nice businesses and local stores in the community. Many love the local grocery store, Fareway. Crime seems to be very low which makes many of the community happy. North Liberty also possesses a phenomenal community and recreation center with a welcoming library, pool, track, and other things.
