Waterloo Reviews

1 review
We really enjoy living in Waterloo because it is just far enough from Omaha to be away from the big-city life, but close enough if we wanted to do something. We'd like to have the convenience of a grocery store that is in our town, but we appreciate the isolation, so it's a trade-off. It would also be nice if there was a public golf course in Waterloo or Elkhorn, but there are a few public links opportunities that are a bit further away.
