Cedar Rapids

A city in eastern Iowa. It's the second-largest city in the state and lies in Linn County on both banks of the Cedar River. As of 2021, the city has a population 274,974 according to WorldPopulationReview.com.

The city is also known nicknamed the "City of Five Seasons," the fifth being the season to enjoy the other four. The symbol of this is the Tree of Five Seasons sculpture that can be seen downtown along the north river bank. Another (not so glorious) nickname is the "City of Five Smells", as many aromas can be smelt in the air on different days such as Crunch Berries from the nearby Quaker Oats factory or the town dump playfully named Mt. Trashmore.

There are even some celebrities from Cedar Rapids including Ashton Kutcher and Elijah Wood. There's also a movie titled 'Cedar Rapids', but it was not actually filmed in the city.
