About The Quad Cities
The Quad Cities are a group of five cities in the heart of Illinois and Iowa that offer a unique blend of history, culture, and outdoor activities. The Mississippi River connects the cities of Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa, and Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline in Illinois, making them a popular destination for water sports and outdoor recreation.
The Quad Cities have a rich history that dates back to the 18th century, when European immigrants first settled in the area. Visitors can now explore historic sites such as the John Deere Pavilion, which tells the story of the area’s agricultural heritage, and the Black Hawk State Historic Site, which honors the Sauk leader who fought against the US in the Black Hawk War of 1832.
Bally’s Quad Cities Casino & Hotel, which offers a variety of gaming options as well as live entertainment and dining options, is one of the most popular attractions in the Quad Cities. The Figge Art Museum, which houses a collection of American and European art, and the Putnam Museum and IMAX Theater, which features interactive exhibits and a giant screen theater, are also popular attractions.
Modern Woodmen Park is a must-see destination for baseball fans visiting the Quad Cities. The combination of its picturesque setting, its unique design, and its rich history make it one of the most iconic minor league baseball stadiums in the country.
The Quad Cities also have a number of famous residents, including Mark Twain, the famous American humorist and writer who lived in the area for several years and wrote about his experiences in the book “Life on the Mississippi.” Bix Beiderbecke, a jazz musician, was born and raised in Davenport, as was Casey Stengel, a former professional baseball player and manager who was born in Kansas City but raised in Davenport. Actress Lara Flynn Boyle hails from Davenport.
Finally, the Quad Cities provide an excellent mix of historical, cultural, and recreational activities, making it an ideal destination for a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation. The Quad Cities have something for everyone, whether you’re interested in history, art, or outdoor activities.
