I love Waverly. It has a slight small town feel but it's big enough that everyone is not in each other's business. Waverly is a very community-based town; we have many traditions just to simply spend time with each other. The schools are great and prepare you to face the real world. Overall, Waverly is a wonderful, family-friendly town that's great for people who love to help each other out.
Waverly is a great community with a lot of young families. The school system is great. There isn't much to do in Waverly, but it's very close to both Lincoln and Omaha. Waverly is a very safe town with little violence. It's a great place to raise kids in a family-friendly environment. There is a small town feel, but residents are close to two major cities to provide entertainment and more job opportunities.
