Cedar Valley Entertainment
Welcome to the first post of the Rent Waterloo Apartments official rental blog. We’re here to help you navigate the rental waters of Waterloo, IA. This blog will typically highlight Waterloo apartments and new apartments complexes in the area, as well as offer tips and advice to the prospective renter. However today we’ll break from our scheduled programming to talk about the Cedar Valley. We’d like to set the stage so to speak for anyone interested in renting apartments or homes in Waterloo, Cedar Falls, and the Cedar Valley area. This is an exciting area boasting a lot of recent growth with obvious potential for continued growth. Already a vibrant, young community benefiting from the prestigious University of Northern Iowa, the Cedar Valley doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Let’s talk about some of that recent growth and what the Cedar Valley has to offer potential renters.
College hill in Cedar Falls is an area close to UNI campus that has seen much of this exciting recent growth in the area. After losing its ability to draw and attract the campus crowd and those in the community in the last few years, we’ve seen a revitalization of College Hill with some exciting new businesses:
Sidecar Coffee is a quaint, cozy, and unique Cedar Falls coffee shop located on the hill. Opening in the last year this coffee shop has already drawn a large following and rave reviews.

Balance Hot Yoga
Balance Hot Yoga Studio is another brand new business opening it’s doors on the hill just last year. This Cedar Falls Yoga studio sports a modern design with a beautifully constructed studio. The teachers are also tremendous, offering a range of classes from beginners to advanced yoga levels.

With a rooftop patio, specialty drinks like “Social Bear” and “Sugar Daddy”, and an awesome location on the hill, it’s easy to understand why Social House has become such a popular hangout on college hill. This upscale Cedar Falls bar is a perfect hangout for students and the general public alike.
Since its opening, Gingers Irish Pub has already undergone a slew of changes. With a focus on live music and a party atmosphere, students gravitate towards this newly revamped Cedar Falls bar.
Main Street Cedar Falls
The best of both worlds, Whiskey Road in downtown Cedar Falls is one of the best new Cedar Falls restaurants as well as one of the nicest Cedar Falls sports bars around. With an American fusion menu featuring gluten free and vegetarian options, there truly is something for everyone to love at Whiskey Road. Not to mention the well over 100 selections of local, craft, and rare whiskeys from their incredible bar. Grab a seat at the restaurant for a truly great food experience or belly up to the bar for an incredible whiskey experience.
