What Bert Has To Say About Cedar Rapids Metro Area

Cedar Rapids is a typically Midwestern agricultural and industrial center, the center of which is built on an island at the “rapids” of the Cedar River. Downtown is modern in appearance, with attractive parks and waterfront areas.

There are a couple of small colleges in town and some minor league sports.
