Speaking from the experience of living only 10 minutes outside of Sioux City, I can say this is a great area. I actually live in Nebraska but my commute time from home to about any job in Sioux City is only 15-20 minutes, tops. There are no traffic jams to worry about so your commute time is distance time only. As far as the crime, yes we do lock our doors but I believe we would do that no matter where we lived bc no one really knows their neighbors now do they? Although in our little town, there are too many dogs for my comfort, if it weren't for that, I would not hesitate to walk at night with my husband and would feel safe. I live in a quiet neighborhood and the best part is, you can own a 1000 sq. ft. home with a normal 75X150 lot for around and even less than $100,000.00, pay less than $1500 in yearly taxes and cost of living is very, very low. My only serious complaint with it is the weather. Although I've lived all my life in this area, I loathe wintry roads and wish I lived in warmer climate and didn't have to worry about snow. If that doesn't bother you, this is the life! Jobs are not real plentiful but there are jobs here. Basically, if you have a job here and if you can stand to report to it daily, you hang on to it with all you have. Sioux City is definitely a little rougher than surrounding cities but these surrounding cities are so easily accessible and distance is not really a factor.
