      It's small town

      I've been here a year now, most people are very nice the church here on 61 is fantastic, no traffic everything is close by like city hall and the library is wonderful for the kids. These are a positive to live here above US average I'd say.
      Now the not so good is roads are tore up, you can have studded tires but only on city streets no hwy, no and I mean zero night life, they have a few bars but no dancing and upper scale places that I have found. The weather is the worst, icy and wet snow you need a good set of tires for sure, there is more bad than good but what is good is really good and I have lived all over U.S

      Muscatine, Iowa A Typical Midwestern City

      Muscatine, Iowa is the prototypical small city in the Midwest. While not for everyone, I enjoyed my time in Muscatine and would recommend it to any who wish to get out of the big city but still enjoy some of what a city has to offer.

      Muscatine is located in Muscatine County and has a population of around 24,000 people. The H.J. Heinz company is a major employer and there are many small manufacturing plants that drive the local economy. It is located just 30 miles west of Davenport, which is part of the Quad Cities where shopping, restaurants, and night life spots are in abundant.

      Muscatine has many parks that are designed for families and those who enjoy hiking and trails. It is located on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River, which is a haven for those who enjoys fishing, water sports, and the like. All in all, Muscatine's slow pace makes it a great place to raise a family.
