What Renters Like and Dislike About Waukee

Very quiet and peaceful, neighbors are kind and like family and everybody knows each other. .

The IMAX is new and I love going to see new movies there. There are several gas stations that I walk to. There are close by grocery stores. There are restaurants

Well for me it's the nice weather in the summer and the steep hills for sledding in the winter. The pools are nice the new one not the old one that ones dirt it need a new filter. The Craig's are nice very nice the get along with everyone and they are pleasant to be around.
