NewBo City Market
Food & shopping all in one. Live music and free excercise classes are held outside during warmer weather.
NewBo is an indoor year round market. The surrounding neighborhood has a plethora of brewery's. There are a number of festivals and events here and it's right across the river from Czech Village.
Great place to people watch, browse, or buy. Local food and goods, beer/wine, and almost always something going on in the neighborhood.
Great place to stop in and see the market. Feel free to shop a bit, grab a beer while you walk around the market, and/or sneak a snack or go to town on a full meal at any of the kiosks.
“One of my favorite places listed on here! Easily the best atmosphere, decor, and well put together bar/restaurant. Much more classy and up scale compared to the rest. Slightly expensive for bar & restaurant but well worth it for the unique food and experience. Most people arrive here for a late night dinner and turn it into late hour drinks. ”

The Theatre is home to Orchestra Iowa, the region’s premier symphony orchestra. ”
“Good friends own this, and our daughter worked there in high school. Great place to hang out. Awesome breakfasts, esp breakfast burrito.”
“The fact that this is an amazing brewery almost overshadows it's excellent dining options -- but don't miss out! They have an Americana inspired menu, with snack options, as well as tacos, burgers, brisket, and more! But don't get too distracted, the beer is still the main course. They always have at least one nitro on tap, and have a rotating list of beers to keep it fresh for each season. There is something here for every style of beer drinker! (Cider for non-beer fans, and house brewed orange soda and root beer for non-alcoholic choices!)”
“Cedar Rapids has had a diverse immigrant population since its conception. One of the largest groups of immigrants were Czechs. Learn about the influence they had on Cedar Rapids through the decades! They have both permanent and traveling displays, so even if you have visited in the past, it is worth it to check in to see what's new! Check out the Czech Village just down the road from the museum, there are local shops and restaurants in this district.”
