The City of Five Seasons
Cedar Rapids is a vibrant city, encompassing unique attractions, exciting events, specialty shopping, a dynamic art scene, outdoor recreation, and a large variety of restaurant and nightlife options. Cedar Rapids offers a unique balance of big city amenities without all the typical hassles and headaches that come with a large city. This extra time afforded to our residents and visitors is why Cedar Rapids is known as “The City of Five Seasons.” This fifth season affords us time to enjoy all other seasons, and to enjoy life.
