Review of Davenport, Iowa

Best place I ever lived
Star Rating - 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 this.
