While I do not live in Waterloo, I do live in SE Iowa and have traveled through the area and met a few people from there. A lot of people choose to live in neighboring towns, such as Hudson and Cedar Falls, because they believe the schools are better and there is less crime and overall a better place to raise kids. Hudson is only about a 15 or 20 minute commute, if you are working in Waterloo. I know there is a gas station near where Hwy 63 and Hwy 20 cross and it gets robbed all the time. I hope this helps you a little and I hope someone else will chime in with some suggestions and advice for you.

I'd stick to Cedar Falls. Waterloo really is not that nice of a place for many reasons.
