Cedar Rapids, IA

From a museum and an entire district that celebrate its rich Czech history to the Muslim Cultural Center that opened in a 1934 mosque, cultures of all kinds are woven throughout the area’s tapestry, exuding a welcoming vibe to all who enter. This is just one reason people continue to make the move to Cedar Rapids. Other reasons? Recent revitalizations, top education programs, a thriving insurance and finance sector and the MedQ – a.k.a. a one-stop shop for residents’ health or wellness needs. Plus, the city’s numerous dining options, shopping centers, McGrath Amphitheatre and Veterans Memorial Stadium are top entertainment draws.
