Dining and Shopping

You’ll find a wide variety of options from bar food at your favorite local pub to sushi at a Japanese restaurant in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. Whatever your taste, you’ll be able to find something that satisfies your appetite.

ICR is home to one of the state’s largest malls - featuring a major sporting goods store, clothing shops, specialty stores, and an NHL regulation-size ice rink! Throughout the region there are unique and locally-owned boutiques and an outlet mall with more than 75 shops.

In Cedar Rapids, specialty shopping can be found in Newbo City Market, while Iowa City is proud of its Pedestrian Mall - which will be completely renovated by fall of 2019.
