I love North Liberty. As a student, I love how many cute places there are to go and study with friends. Though it does have few fun things to do. It is super close to cedar rapids and Coralville which have some fun places to hang out for all ages. The one thing I love most about North Liberty is that overall it is a pretty quiet place to live. It is very family-friendly with many parks and cool places to go on hikes throughout the town. It is also a great place academically with many places to got school, private and public.

I am glad this place gave me my start. It was the first placed I moved too and lived for over eight years and i'm very glad that I did. Im very happy my mother moved us here with my step father and the friends and people that I have met and accumulated, the lessons I've learned have all been worth it. But those lessons have come at a cost at my own happiness and confidence that I will never get back because of the people that reside in North Liberty.
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.
