Best place I ever lived - 7/28/2014
Lived in 12 SE cities before moving to Davenport. Quality of life is much better; ease of moving around with little to no interstate traffic. Grid layout makes it simple to find everything. Convenient, 10 mins to anything. Great old homes and buildings with interesting architecture and quality. 60 plus year old home is better than new ones. Shady streets with sidewalks. Ally parking garage set up is great. Whitey's Ice Cream and local restaurants are terrific. Home prices low. The river view is awesome - never tire of it. Winter is easy to get used to and driving on powder snow is no problem. People are friendly and polite but not while driving. Hate the traffic lite cams. Inexpensive, easy to adjust to. Doesn't get better than Read More

Don't think it's any better in the Midwest. - 12/31/2012
No jobs or minimum wage flipping burgers, crime is so high there's a fight for more police when there's no money to pay than Go ahead call 911 it might take 45 minutes to get help on a Saturday night. Food is so high it's stupid, we live in the breadbasket. We are trapped by one food chain called hyvee they set the price by demographically how much your area makes. So if you think it's better here think again. The Super 8 is full of people trapped here because they thought leaving Michigan and coming here would be a better life. We have 3 casinos, 2 in Iowa, davenport and a mile away Bettendorf and one right over the bridge in Rock Island, I'll , Illinois is much worse, several people I know are moving, businesses are closing. I hate to break your bubble, but the Midwest got ruined in the 80's the last big push to the "clean" Midwest ......no more. So sounds like everyone wants better. Trust me don't pick Iowa Read More

No place like home ... Not - 1/12/2010
We moved here in August of 2009 and fell in love with the QCA right off the bat. Moving to Davenport makes our 8th city of residence in fourteen years. All of the cities we have lived in have been in the mid-west. We have never met a nicer group of people who have been so willing to help me and my wife with our transition. The city is not too big and not to small and it has a taste of all the cultural venues my wife and I are interested in. This is so much NOT like home that I think I am going to love Read More
