What Bert Has To Say About Davenport-Moline-Rock Island Metro Area

The “Quad Cities” span the Mississippi River and the Illinois-Iowa border. Davenport and Bettendorf form the Iowa component, and Moline and Rock Island are on the Illinois side. The area, also called the “Breadbasket of America,” is a center for agriculture, particularly known as the headquarters of machinery manufacturer John Deere (in Moline), and the heart of the Corn Belt. Highlights include an attractive setting in the Mississippi Valley, a slow pace and friendly people. Cost of living is below Iowa and Illinois averages, but violent crime rates are surprisingly high and the economy is strongly connected to the farming industry.
