Cedar Rapids  Tourism Office

Cedar Rapids PRIDE!

Welcome is our Language!

In Cedar Rapids our differences are celebrated throughout the business, non-profit and hospitality communities. We look forward to showing why you belong here.


Experience contemporary elegance, award winning facilities and exceptional service at the Hotel at Kirkwood. Enjoy a handcrafted cocktail at the Maikka bar and treat yourself to fine dining at The Class Act (a real-time, teaching environment for Kirkwood Community College’s Culinary Arts Program). For a special treat, book your stay at The Clark House Airbnb near downtown Cedar Rapids. This vibrant rainbow house is a shabby, sleek farmhouse style with a little extra pride sprinkled on top!


Shop in charming Uptown Marion, Czech Village and NewBo Mainstreet, explore miles of urban and rural trails, celebrate with the family-friendly LGBTQIA+ community at CRPrideFest, and dance the night away at Basix. Looking for more? Don’t miss the “Cedar Rapids” episode on The Gaycation Travel Show to prep for your trip! 


Cedar Rapids received a perfect score on the HRC Municipal Equality Index, several companies were named to the HRC Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality and many of our community restaurants, shops and accommodation proudly display this rainbow decal in their windows to illustrate their open-armed commitment to inclusivity for all.
