North Liberty Reviews

32 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review North Liberty
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.
There is very little I would want to change about North Liberty, Iowa. I have lived there for 5 years and I enjoy it very much. The traffic is never insane, the people are usually nice and helpful, and I feel like there's a new and exciting business being built there every single day. The town doesn't offer a ton of diversity but it is very family friendly. There are plenty of parks and schools for children to go to. There's also tons of restaurants to eat at. There's always a new place to try.
