While historically known as an industrial, working class city, Cedar Rapids is once again growing and seeing expanded opportunities for employment. The cultural and economic center of eastern Iowa, Cedar Rapids is home to two four-year colleges: Coe College and Mount Mercy University, along with an evening business school unit of the University of Iowa.

While historically known as an industrial, working class city, Cedar Rapids is once again growing and seeing expanded opportunities for employment. The cultural and economic center of eastern Iowa, Cedar Rapids is home to two four-year colleges: Coe College and Mount Mercy University, along with an evening business school unit of the University of Iowa. In 2008, Cedar Rapids was severely impacted by record flooding along the Cedar River. While the city suffered significant damage, many damaged buildings have now been repaired or rebuilt and the city is thriving economically. While out of the way of most major travel routes and destinations, a stop in Cedar Rapids may uncover a great taste of the Midwest. Typical Iowa hospitality is not lost here.
