Overview of Urbandale

With its safe streets, small-town charm and thriving business districts, it's no wonder Urbandale is a desirable and popular place to live in the Des Moines metro area. While people come to the city for a variety of reasons, they stay because it's a great place to raise a family, start a business or retire. It's no wonder Urbandale was named one of CNN's Best Places to Live in 2007.

Those who come to the city may be seeking Urbandale apartments for rent. No matter what neighborhood they're looking in, renters will find that the area's friendly atmosphere makes moving to this city easy on the whole family.

Living in Urbandale, IA

Urbandale traces its history back to 1917, when it was incorporated. It was a tiny town for several years after, with just a few hundred residents. After World War II, suburbs became popular places to live, and the city's population grew rapidly.

This streetcar was important to Urbandale's development, and it helped the area grow as a commuter town. Early residents used it to access work at the nearby mines, while later residents would take advantage of this public transportation system to get to their jobs in downtown Des Moines.

As of July 2011, Urbandale was home to more than 40,000 residents. It has become a vibrant, livable community that is virtually unrecognizable from its beginnings as a small town of just over 200 residents.

Urbandale Work and Study

Students in Urbandale will find that Kaplan University has a Des Moines campus located conveniently close to home. With different degree programs in the arts, business and health, many students should be able to find a program to suit their interests. Those interested in pursuing a career in the medical industry can choose to further their education at Des Moines University, also just a short drive from Urbandale. As Iowa's largest medical school, the campus provides students with all the latest technology and amenities they need to learn, but it retains the feel of a much smaller college. With a history dating back to 1898, the university is known as an established and prestigious medical school.

Despite the presence of colleges, Urbandale is much more than a college town - it's a thriving business center. Many residents are employed by companies such as Marsh & McLennan, CitiGroup, Wells Fargo Financial and Iowa Home Care. Some other residents find employment with the public sector, and serve the U.S. Postal Service or the Urbandale Community Schools.

Rentals in Urbandale, IA, and Cost of Living

The monthly cost of rental properties in the area range quite widely. Renters may find that apartments in Urbandale will vary in rent based on location, size and amenities. Apartments typically range from $650 to $1,000 per month. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals that the median gross monthly rent in the city is $789.

City-Data statistics indicate that residents of Urbandale enjoy a lower cost of living than the typical U.S. resident. Their expenses are nearly 8 points lower than the national average.

Urbandale Attractions and Special Events

Urbandale was designed for residents who love to enjoy the great outdoors. With miles of trails available for public use, kids and adults alike will enjoy biking, jogging or even walking the family dog throughout the city. If you're looking to take a break from your workout, stop at one of the city's many parks and enjoy the beautiful views of the community.

Iowa winters can be long and cold, but that doesn't deter residents from having a good time outside. Sledding and ice skating are two popular cold weather activities that families and friends can enjoy together. Stock up on snowpants, sleds and hot chocolate, and prepare to engage in one of Urbandale's favorite local pastimes.

Urbandale offers plenty of events during which residents can meet their neighbors and connect with new friends. Frequent classes like tai chi and yoga are held for older residents at the senior center, while special events like story time are a great family activity.
