Points of PRIDE

In the Cedar Rapids area our differences are celebrated throughout the business, non-profit and hospitality communities.

STAY - Thistle Summit B&B in Mount Vernon, is a safe haven for the queer community and people of all walks of life to find respite, relaxation and midwestern hospitality. The Clark House Silver (Rainbow House) Airbnb near downtown Cedar Rapids is a shabby, sleek farmhouse style with a little extra sprinkled on top!

ENJOY - Cedar Rapids’ main LGBTQ hot-spot for nightlife is Belle’s Basix, but there are plenty of dining and entertainment options throughout the area including Thew Brewing. Shop in Uptown Marion and Czech Village/NewBo Mainstreet. Explore the outdoors on our miles of urban and rural trails. Events throughout the year include CRPrideFest, an annual summer celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community. The family-friendly event features vendors, artists, entertainment, and food. 

WORK/LIVE - Cedar Rapids received a perfect score on the most recent HRC Municipal Equality Index. Several area companies with a large presence and/or headquarters in Cedar Rapids were named to the HRC Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality 2020.
