Waterloo & Cedar Falls

Waterloo and Cedar Falls comprise a metro area of more than 107,000 residents who are proud to call the Cedar Valley home. These two cities are just minutes apart, and though they’re intertwined by shared geography and regional pride, each boasts its own unique history and attractions. Waterloo, for example, played a central role in the growth of John Deere – a testament to the city’s long history of manufacturing, craftsmanship and hard work. Cedar Falls is home to the University of Northern Iowa, one of three public institutions of higher learning across the state and a hotbed of innovative discoveries. Whichever city you choose to plant your roots, you won’t have to go far to enjoy the amenities of the other – an added benefit of life in the Cedar Valley!
