The Cedar Valley has been booming with businesses new and returning for the past year.

The Other Place, a fixture for many UNI students and alum closed its location late last year. Then in late June, it opened a new location right on Main Street in Cedar Falls.

Several new spots have opened this past year in Cedar Falls. A take-out-friendly restaurant called  Carter House opened right next to the Black Hawk Hotel. In addition, a restaurant located in the same spot as Santa's Workshop in Cedar Falls opened last year, it's called Georges Local.
