Waterloo IL Real Estate & Information

Waterloo IL Real Estate & Information

With a comfortable population of approximately 7,000, Waterloo has the charm and neighborly feel you’d expect from a small town. And with its proximity to St. Louis, just thirty miles south, Waterloo residents are able to enjoy the attractions of a metropolitan epicenter, knowing that the safety and comfort of home are close by. Relocating to Waterloo allows residents to have the best of both worlds.

Shopping and Dining
One of the major benefits of living in Waterloo is having access to all of the unique shops that make up its eclectic, local economy. Wandering from shop to shop along the tree-lined streets of Waterloo is like taking a walk back in time. Your dining experience is bound to be just as refreshing here in Waterloo, where fine and friendly intersect. With the fun times to be had at BoBeck's Sports Bar & Grill, there’s something for everyone and every occasion. Some other dining options to note are Gallagher’s, Dreamland Palace and J Fires Bistro.

Parks and Recreation
Waterloo is surrounded by the rolling hills and open spaces of the American Bottoms, and Mississippi River bluffs, with plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, and hiking. Waterloo is home to the Illinois Caverns State Natural Area, where you can explore one of the most incredible natural wonders in the state. The Waterloo Park District is proud to offer its residents a number of parks equipped with various sporting courts, pavilions and up-to-date play structures. Waterloo has a rich history and a number of historic sites to see, such as the Peterstown House. Take a tour and do some wine tasting at the Waterloo Winery, or take a few swings at the local golf courses: Waterloo Country Club, Acorns, Annbriar and The Ridge!

With low crime rates, low unemployment and a diverse economy, Waterloo real estate is in demand.

In addition to new stores that have opened in town, Waterloo has a vibrant, historic downtown business district. Waterloo’s active Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the economic viability of local commerce, with resources for individuals and businesses alike.
